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.
