How to deploy war to remote tomcat using the SCP Ant task

Useful properties, mainly the details of the remote login plus the location of the tomcat webapps folder to deploy the war:

remoteusername=my_username
remotehost=remote_box_name
remotepassword=my_pass
remotedir=/home/dliapis/apache-tomcat-5.5.28/webapps

and the actual scp ant task:

<target name="deployremote" depends="build" description="Deploy to the remote linux box">
    	<scp trust="yes" file="${name}.war" todir="${remoteusername}@${remotehost}:${remotedir}" password="${remotepassword}"/>
    </target>
