Can I write the build process which builds the files automatically at a specified time.


For example, I need to run the build process after every four hours.

Is it possible? If yes, How?

Ant is written in Java. You can learn ANT APIs to make a simple class that periodically invokes ANT, so it won't use NT or Unix specific utilities and will keep platform independency.

Yes, but its outside the scope of the current version of Ant. You can use your operating systems background job (cron, AT, etc) facility. There are some other projects that wrap Ant and automate the process - check out this FAQ: http://www.jguru.com/faq/view.jsp?EID=478213

You could set up a scheduled task (on NT anyway) to run your build.bat at specified times/intervals

I'm sure there are similar ways on other platforms
