Has anyone used the internal instance of ANT packaged with CF
to run a different build file? I want to run an automated install
of a CF app on a remote server that I don't have access to to
install ANT seperately. The server DOES have CF installed and I
know CF contains ANT (<cfroot>/lib/ant.jar) - has anyone
leverage it to run a seperate build? So I'd like to deploy my ANT
script to this remote server along with a zip of my source code and
run CF's version of ANT from the command line to install the
source. Anyone have a better idea if I can't install ANT
I don;t know anything about the built in Ant install on
ColdFusion, but I can suggest that you don't need Ant installed on
the server to be able to use Ant to manipulate what is on the
server. how would you normally manipulate what is on the server?
Through network directories? FTP? SFTP? Telnet? If so, you could do
those things with Ant running on your local machine just by
automating what you would normally do.
