Re: newbie: why svnant with subclipse

    Your example scenario is a great example for an SvnAnt use case. I did
this during my CI process. If the build was successful, tag the current
trunk and deploy to our internal dev server. You could also use this for
release management and have an Ant build script to perform a release from a
tag. As far as running Ant from Eclipse, there is no harm with running Ant
from the command line or Eclipse. It shouldn't play a part in your decision
to use SvnAnt.

Take care,
