you will need to use the <exec/> task for steps like creating the
database and importing the dump into the new schema.
Once your database is up, you can use the <sqlexec/> task to run DDL and
DML statements.
To check whether a script exists, there is a task called <available/>
which can set a property if a file is available.
For error checking, you can run <exec/> with failonerror="true" to stop
your build if a script fails.
You need to test before hand whether the system commands or the scripts
that you will run to create the database and import the dump are
returning proper exit statuses. (setting ERRORLEVEL on Windows or $? on

I’m a complete newbie to ANT and I need to write an ant script which
upgrades a database version from base level 1.00 to a given version number
by running a series of mysql (ver 5.1.45) scripts.

Using ANT script I need to:
1) create a database
2) import mysql database(s) dump to a new schema
3) check current database version
4) then check if sql script1 exists
4.1) if "No" then check for next sql script until it has checked for all
scripts then "end"
4.2) if "yes" then run first sql script then check if second sql script
exists - if "yes" then run second sql script and so on until the required
database version is reached.
5) check database version is at correct level then “end” or else start the
loop again
6) how can I script error checking also

Thank you all in advance.
