It depends on the nature of your deployment problem. If its just 'how do 
I copy files to three different systems", then use property file and 
<property file="secure/${server}.properties" /> to pull in a different 
set of properties for each target system.

If you have a more complex problem like "how do bring up my app on 
jboss+mysql on host A, tomcat and derby on host B, with clean install of 
everything if needed", then the project I work on by day, SmartFrog, is 
more suited to your needs: . You can initiate a 
deployment from Ant.
