Subject RE: temp props file created by <junit> task
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2002 15:39:29 GMT
Dunno! I just would prefer to have Ant not create all its temp files in
'basedir'. I like St├ęphane's idea of using a variable, maybe not the global
Java JDK one (which could still be used by default if the Ant specific one
is used).

That way I could direct ant to use build/temp. I put all build products in
build/, and is simply deleted by the 'clean' target. I wouldn't would to
have the entire JDK use that temp dir necessarily, although someone else
might. --DD

Does deleteOnExit work if you forcefully interrupt the JVM?

I can easily manage to kill a JVM without the shutdownHooks being
called on Unix.
