Subject RE: using ant for non build tasks
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 13:43:01 GMT
I use ant scripts on the Linux servers at my company to do what you describe, plus much more.
 I am still on version  1.7.0 and use the ant contrib library version 0.6 which has some extremely
helpful tasks.

Subject: using ant for non build tasks


i'm putting together a simple business "flow" process.  some zip files are pulled from a vendor.
 i need a process to do the following, archive the input, unzip the zip files, and execute
some transformation on some of the data.

currently, it's on a windows server, but we have linux servers in our environment too.  i
was thinking of using an ant script to handle/drive most of this execution.  as ant is primarily
using for building (java appliations), does anyone see issues with using ant to drive this
file processing and manipulation?

thoughts/ideas are very welcome!
