I have not begun using it, but the unit testing approach I will be adopting
can use Ant from directly within Eclipse, which I plan to do. Although I
suppose I could write functionality to do unit testing on specific tagged
versions within the repository, that would probably be overkill and
Subversion/Ant integration would be unnecessary there.

However, I'm wondering if it might be beneficial to use Ant for deploying my
web apps to the live server when the time comes, and in this case, SVN/ANT
integration would probably be nice.

Some possible ideas..

- Functionality to deploy a particular tagged version to the live server.
- Functionality to deploy a tag marked "live" to the live server.

Better yet..

1. Save trunk to a new tagged version. Then,
2. Remove existing "live" tag and recreate "live" tag from trunk. Then,
3. Deploy new "live" tag to the server.

All in one script. This is the kind of thing I would do in Ant, is it not?
Does this make sense, or would it be a waste of time? The alternative that I
was planning on was making the web app directories on the server actual SVN
working copies of the project's "live" tag, and I would have to manually go
to them and update them to pull the latest code. If I could instead push the
code from directly within Eclipse via Ant, that certainly seems like it
would be better.
