The main problem I am having is to understand where Continuum stops and
where tools like Ant and Maven start. Which feature is part of Continuum
and which feature is part of a third party library. When understanding
this it becomes less complicated to find the correct source for help.

You are right, I could use the copy task from my Ant script (there already
is one). What I did not understand (see my problem above) was if that copy
mechanism already is a feature of Continuum or if I should use an Ant

So just a follow up question: when using some copy task from my Ant
script. Should I add a new Ant task to my continuum configuration, or
should I just call a build task in my Ant script which also publishes the
application? Whats the good practice there?

Thanks for your help,
