You might want to consider WebTest (
WebTest "test" scripts are like ant "build" scripts.
You can mix and match whatever ant tasks you want with
webtest tasks (called steps because they are actually
extend ant's Task and provide a reference to a context
which contains the state associated with a series of
http requests). It can do all of the things you are
after below (and quite a bit more too). It doesn't have
XML post yet but should do within a few weeks.

Have a look at WebTest's build file for an example
of how it brings it's own site up in Jetty and tests it.

Cheers, Paul.
