Hi Wendy,

Thanks for the reply and info, but I'm still a little not clear, as you said
Continuum do not have the feature to build and keep the war in historical
order, however you said IME the numbered directory corresponds to the
project id, meaning Continuum allows the build project (war file) to be
stored in numbered folder. Do Continuum allow the existing numbered folder
with war remain as it is even after a new trigger to build the war?
