Dear All,

Request you to help me out to implement the following:

1. ant script to checkout the code from the specified branch/tag from the SVN.
2. ant script to autodeploy the generated war file to any specified server.
3. ant script to schedule the code checkout and do a build.

Thanks in advance. I am new to build & deployment process.

Cheers,
Keerthi Kumar N

Please read this: NotACodeMill

What code do you have os far?

You might want to look into a tool such as Hudson for #3.

Either read a good book on ANT like ANT in Action
or

Use Hudson as suggested by Peter

Also see the manual online. Ant in Action will get you started faster though.

Peter/Sunny: For #3, doesn't Hudson require you to already have a build script?
