Hi Wendy,

Thanks for the reply. I'm using the build.xml, ant engine. In that case, I
need to ask the developer to configure the build.xml (configuration file
which buil the war file) to have define the filesystem to the war can be
stored in version? And I do not want to change it to clean deploy, because
deployment will be done by my superior. All I want is continuumm build and
keep the war in versions (in historical order, maybe the last including the
later war file).

The reason being is we can revert back to old war, by deploying the old war
file if needed. Dont think wants to tag the svn because that would be hassle
for developer.

Any idea how to do this?

Thanks Wendy.


 right now whenever i trigger build.xml to build war file the war get build
at the following directory

its creates folder by number (1,2) under the working-directory folder and
war being stored there.
however, each time when i trigger, a new war being created and the folder
(numbering) get incremented but the previous folder is missing, guess it

example, when 1st trigger the war file stored in folder '1', 2nd time
triggering it, it will then created folder '2' with war file in it but I
believe the previous folder '1' gets removed or deleted in the process
because i dont see it anymore after triggerring it 2nd time.

please advide.
