I googled it. But unfortunately did not get the specific answer. I am a fan of command line and typing. So now, I want to deploy my php based web application with apache-ant. How can I do that? Also I want to practice these deployment in my local pc. Is it possible? Phing is there and what i heard phing works on the top of apache-ant for php application deployment. But I want to face the hassel and want to write in my own hand.

ANT can be used independent of the language you write your program. E.g. if you use Eclipse, you can write a project XML with tasks that copy your PHP files the way you need – Alfabravo Sep 7 '12 at 15:11

Although ant is written in Java, you can still use it to deploy PHP to directories. Take a look at this page
