In trying to automate our DB development, we decided to use ant and Jenkins to run our SQL scripts for a deploy. We had a hard time getting ant to work and after much trial and error (and cussing and fussing) we finally got it to work. The key really was the addsourcefile=”false” attribute and the redirector.

It’s a simple class that uses introspection to test the bean and works great!
