Subject RE: Auto task need to take backup before deployemnt

Basically yes, this is not a smart question.

You aren't giving us any meaningful information about your scenario or the 
problem you are trying to solve. Here's just a sampling of some of the 
information that would have been helpful in your initial query:

Is the machine local or remote? One machine or many?
You're asking about JSPs...what appserver are you deploying to? Does your 
appserver vendor provide this support?
Where are the backups going to be stored?

Obviously I can't speak for everyone on this list, but I don't have the 
time or the patience to try and pry this information out of you. At this 
point it appears to me that you want someone to completely design a 
solution for you; there are people on this list who make their living 
selling these kinds of consulting services - why should they help you 
design a solution for free when you could be hiring them instead?

Describe your goal, describe your problem & describe what you have done so 
far to solve that problem & describe where you're stuck; that's how to ask 
a smart question on this list.
