Ability to run webpublisher from command line to schedule the generation at night

Tis is a request to have the ability to schedule the web publishing of model files.
It is currently possible to run the web publishing from a command line ant script using for example:
@echo on
set BASE_DIR=%~dp0

REM *********** Local envars ***************************
set ECLIPSE="C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP75RSA4WS"
set WORKSPACE=C:\WORK\workspace75\Test\TestANTset BUILDFILE=C:\WORK\workspace75\Test\script\publish.xml

set JAVA_HOME=%ECLIPSE%\jdk\jre
set EQUINOXJAR="C:\Program Files\IBM\SDPShared\plugins\org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.100.v20080509-1800.jar"

java -Dwtp.autotest.noninteractive=true -showversion -Xms50M -Xmx350M -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -cp %EQUINOXJAR% org.eclipse.core.launcher.Main -install %ECLIPSE% -data %WORKSPACE% -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -buildfile %BUILDFILE%
