    Great point on Ant being a build tool (dependency language based) rather than a deployment tool that requires more general purpose programming features.

    This is exactly the point that was made at CITCON Dallas when Martin Fowler preached to the masses about the lameness of Ant and the rise of its replacements. Again, the core complaint was – it’s bad at the scripting needed for deployments and the proper answer is yours: then don’t use it for deployments, use it for builds.



  2. Eric,

    Thanks! I wish people would also get the hang of using Cargo to deploy their apps during builds. All that pain could be averted 🙂
