Hi Friends ,

I have a scenario to auotmate couple of things like
  • Checkout the Code from CVS
  • build it
  • stop server and deploy the artifact generated by above task
  • start server again

  • My Question is

    I have to make sure "build it" should ONLY happends after the Checout happends ( like dependency)

    and moreover i have to deploy the code ONLY when the server completely shutdown

    Could someone shed light on this ?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks, Ganesh Gowtham

    Write an ant script to do this. Then use Hudson to monitor CVS and run the and script every time something changes in CVS.

    I should also add that when i write such scripts I never use an existing app server - I always create a new one from scratch and either remove it when i am done, or optionally leave it there (for possible manual testing) - the script will remove it the next time it runs before re-creating it.
