How to set up automated daily builds?

Excuse the simple question, but I can't seem to come up with the right search terms...

I've gone through some example stuff with the sneak preview EP 6.0 SP4. However, this is all driven via GUIs.

Where is the information for setting up a script-based build and deployment?

Thanks,

-Keith

    I've been using Maven with homemade plugins for automatic builds for some time now without any problem. If you have been working with Maven or Ant previously this shouldn't be nay problem to set up.

    My plugin builds the par files and there is also functionality for deployment to the portal. Let me know if you need any examples/copy of plugin.

    I've never tried it, and haven't heard of anyone doing it either.

    I found a document called PDK Getting started, but this is from 2002 (and probably EP 5 )

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/documents/a1-8-4/pdk getting started

    It talks a bit about ant building.

    While searching I found the following page under the java development role -> Download

    http://<portal server>/irj/portalapps/com.sap.portal.pdk.documentation.Downloads/docs/opentools.html

    Here you can find all you need to setup ant for deployment, and then you just need another framework around that to get nightly builds/deployments.

    Please let me know how it goes
