hi all, i have some 15/20 applications based on J2EE, but each application has diff Config.xml, my client wants me to generalised the process of generating the generalised config.xml file, (i have some idea like i will have a properties file from which i will pick up the data regarding specific application n then generate the config.xml). the next step is i need to build the application for which i need ANT script, the next step is i need to deploy thios on unix box. can anybody suggest me any options for doing al this. any code snippet or any open source tool for this? (i thing maven and cruisecontrol are the tools used for this not very sure) plz let me kno if anybody has ny backgrng on this.....
Sush, Does config.xml refer to a J2EE required file or just a place where you have application specific properties?
Ant and Maven are both build tools to help with this process. For further questions on this note that we have a build tools forum down below. CruiseControl is a continuous build system for Ant. You may want to look into this later, but first you need the build with Ant or Maven.
