How to migrate the data from one sandbox to another using ANT?

Hi,

 

Is there a tool to migrate data between sandboxes or developer orgs using ANT tool?

I want to automate the process of migrating the data. Can I achieve this?

 

Regards,

Vinay Kumar

ANT is to migrate metadata not data. Use salesforce dataloader for the same.

Use command line to automate the process - http://wiki.developerforce.com/page/Using_Data_Loader_from_the_command_line

You can also use jitterbit dataloader

jitterbit.com/ does not handle circular references, multiple object transfer (and their relationships), N Level parent-child transfer.

Jitterbit also has challenges in pre-check and configurations (e.g. meta data consistency check, triggers and validation rules, multi sure support etc..)
