I'm trying to create a Ant build script for building and
deploying ColdFusion applications as a WAR. I am able to compile
the ColdFusion code, and creating the WAR itself is pretty simple,
but there's two steps I'm not familiar with:
a) How do you generate the applications' web.xml, config.xml,
neo-debug.xml, neo-query.xml, license.properties, etc files that

b) Is it possible to use Ant to do deploy time configuraton
of the ColdFusion app? For example, setting the database that will
I have looked at the build.xml that is generated by
ColdFusion MX7's administration tool, but this only does the
compile step and the WAR creation step. The doesn't seem to be any
documented Ant task for the other things I asked about above.
If anyone has done this, I would very much appreciate it if
you could point me in the right direction. Sample ant build files
would be especially appreciated, but even just a clue as to where
to look for the info I need would be very helpful.
