I have a really solid build script working now. At the beginning, it checks whether Tomcat is running, and if so, shuts it down; then it does the build, does all the patching (with a placeholder for the Analyzer patch if we get a working one), and links in the testing material; then it restarts Tomcat, and sends Firefox to the test site. That's pretty much perfect. I tried turning on the webapp.samples and webapp.test-suite in the Cocoon local.build.properties, but the results were mixed. The Samples page works, but not the "Blocks with samples" page; the eXist page comes up, but all the links are broken and you can't get the server status. Doubtless there are ways to fix this, and if I can do that, then we can really release our build alongside the main builds on the site, because it would be functionally complete. I think it might be worth putting time into that. Alternatively, I could just fix the links manually in a static build and post that, but that would make updates a bit annoying. We should figure out whether all that's wrong is weblinks, or whether there's something else that needs fixing.
