Our noon (US ET) talk on Thursday Oct 29 will be Doug Hughes presenting , "Using Ant to Deploy ColdFusion Application".


Ant is a fantastic tool for deploying applications. It's widely used in the Java world, but is under utilized by ColdFusion developers? What can it do? Pretty much all the tedious steps you currently do manually! In this presentation I'll give an overview of Ant as well as demonstrate CFAnt, which is an open source suite of Ant tasks that implement all of the features of the ColdFusion admin API!
