First, now would be a good time to recompile VMS with MAX_COMMAND_LENGTH
#defined to something larger :)

Assuming that is not possible, Ant can do its best to work around the problems. 

However, your patch is the wrong workaround. It contains hard coded assumptions
that anything called java or javac must be the relevant executables, and
provides no support for other programs -such as rmic. 

We have the Java task, which creates the command line for execution, in its fork
method. The appropriate place for java command line restructuring logic is
there, not in Execute.java. 

Please can you move your patch to that class, and provide us with that and
associated unit tests, as documented in the ant task guidelines. (
http://ant.apache.org/ant_task_guidelines.html ) 

If the OpenVMS team is interested in Ant support, we would be interested to know
the result of ant's own test suite running on your OS -that of the latest CVS
version, preferably. Regular checks that Ant worked on OpenVMS would prevent
more problems arising. 

renaming bugrep for more specificness.
