Subject RE: Trying to run CGI script on server after build
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2004 12:19:55 GMT
I haven't done much CGI, but I assume this is on a web server?  You can use the ant get task
to hit the script.  If you want to validate what the script returns, you might want to look
into something like HttpUnit and friends.  Very nice to validate web sites.
