I didn't realize you were using Ant.  "Deploy" here doesn't mean to
your application server, it means into a Maven repository.

Continuum doesn't have that feature.  It came out of the Maven project
and just assumes that you will be using Maven and a repository manager
with it, so it doesn't try to store the things you're building.

If you're willing to modify the Continuum code it could probably be
added.  For Maven builds, Continuum already saves off the Surefire
(test) results.  I think I already have a feature request in JIRA
asking for the ability to save off other things from the build.

But, you can also do it with your Ant build by simply copying the war
somewhere else on the server.  That's what I'd suggest.

That's odd... IME the numbered directory corresponds to the project
id.  Unless you are removing and re-adding the project, I wouldn't
expect that number to change.
