I would like to set up an email task in ANT. but, am not sure how to implement that. Coz from my knowledge, build automatically exists when it fails.
I donot want to do this - search log for build fail message and send an email if found.
Is there a good practice to catch the exact step where of fail and send an email  with appropriate information when ever if does fail . Thanks in Advance !
