I wasn't sure which board to put this but I know that someone will see it here and comment on it.
When you deploy stuff live how do you do it? I know that you can probably use a build tool like Ant (for Java projects) if you are deploying to a server within the local network. But what if you are deploying dozens of files in seperate folders and in a remote server? I'm sure you do not update each file individually.
I'm insterested in this since I'm a junior web developer and would like to learn the tricks of the trade. We want to ensure that there is minimal (or none at at all) disturbance to the website while we are deploying, right? At work we mainly use ASP and ColdFusion.
In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.<br />Eric Hoffer
Thanks both of you and for moving the thread to the appropriate forum. Why didn't I think of General computing...anyway
RE:FTP to and from servers: Wow, i didn't know that Ant can do that, I will RTM more. So far I've been using ant in my JSF apps to copy stuff, create javadocs etc. Ant just keeps on suprprising me everyday. No Maven yet for me then
