Subject sync files with Ant?
Date Sun, 09 Mar 2003 00:17:49 GMT
I would like to build a sync capability as an Ant feature but I think I 
need some pointers with getting started.  I just tried to build Ant 
1.5.2 and got some SAX problems.  I also need to know where to begin 
once I can get everything compiled.

The Ant feature I would like to create is something that I would like 
to use at work.  I manage a 3 tier development system where we have a 
development, test and production environment.  I have an Ant script 
doing all of the building for me and once it is built I want to copy 
the files to the test and production servers.  To do this I want an Ant 
process that does something like rsync, but to start it will just do 
copying to local directories.

The sync process will do a comparison to check if files need to be 
created, replaced or deleted in the destination location.  The behavior 
would also need to be configurable.  I could create software which 
would do all of this outside of Ant, but it seems like a logical 
feature to add to Ant.

I would appreciate any feedback on this idea...
