For each new task we must manually perform a bunch of operations that we would like to automate, so I'd like to get suggestions on what tool, scripting language or other techniques might possibly exist that are suitable for this purpose.

The sequence of operations I'd like to automate is the following. Even if not all steps are covered by a certain tool or technique I'd still like to hear about it because even if only some of these steps can be automated it would still help.

1) Create a new Eclipse workspace and import a preferences file (or set the preferences in any other way).

2) Checkout certain Java projects from SVN.

3) Create new development branches in SVN for these projects and switch the projects to these branches.

4) Create External Tool Run configurations for the Gradle scripts contained in these projects and run these configurations.

5) Create Run configurations for some of these projects.

Thanks in advance for any possible advice.

Davide,

Oomph provides some of these things out of the box and can be extended
with specialized task implementations you could use to automate the setup:

Ed, thanks, I didn't know about Oomph, that's exactly the type of things I was looking for.
