JoomExBuild is a Joomla Extension Build Script to run under the phing scripting language. It consists of two parts:
- "update_repo" which updates a repository (or just a holding folder) from a Joomla! installation or test server with the files that make up that chosen extension.
- "build_extension" that takes those files and creates an installable package from them.
Also "update_version_info" that - separately to any other operations - updates version numbers and time stamps of .php and .xml files in the project repository
See "Joomla Build Script readme.pdf" for full documentation.
