CFMX and Java Servlet Integration

Recently, I was investigating how to integrate CFMX and Java Servlets. I found that I needed to cycle the CFMX application after each change to my Java classes. In order to make this process less onerous I developed the following ant build file. You'll notice that the CFMX log files are deleted. This was done so that I didn't have to wade through large files in order to find the messages related to whatever change I was making at the time. You might also notice that I've added a four second delay before each delete task. This delay gives the operating system time to write its buffers to disk and close the files after the service has been stopped.

    <property name="cfmx.home"            value="c:/CFusionMX" />
