Hi,

Is there a way to change the user using ant?

I need it to change some permissions on a file. This is a deployable war file so I need to change the permissions every time it is deployed.

I was thinking of incorporating the command in the ant file itself

Thanks in advance,

Vinayak

The concept of "user" is very OS-dependent, so the answer depends on what OS you're using.

A lot depends on what you're doing to deploy the WAR, but assuming that you're deploying it to the same machine Ant runs of and just copying it, you can use the ant "exec" task to execute the "chown" Linux command.
