Subject Re: using ant for non build tasks
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 15:22:31 GMT
I have used Ant for business automation in the past. The
document-production team needed to get the latest versions of all their
files, run multiple transforms on each file, and then produce PDF, help
files, and HTML. So I wrote an Ant file that had several targets, depending
on which output they wanted. It had some convenience tasks, too. Some of
those tasks involved creating zip files, so I am sure you can make
unzipping work, too.
