Subject Re: Running ANT as a Windows Service
Date Fri, 25 Mar 2005 17:17:03 GMT
I think you would want to run something like Maven as a service, not ANT 

Personally I use Windows scheduled tasks to run continuous builds - they 
can be configured to start when computer boots up. The only drawback is 
that on XP+ computers  when I log out all running scheduled tasks are 
aborted, so I do not logout once I logged onto one of our build computers.
