           Summary: Would like an additional startAnt method in Main
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: peter_frontiero@percussion.com


We are currently incorporating ant into the installation process of our 
product.  The product uses the InstallShield framework as a base, but we are 
delegating parts of the actual installation to ant.  To do this we need to 
launch ant in process from the install program, however, the current 
implementation of the Main.startAnt method does not allow this, as it invokes 
a System.exit following completion.  This terminates the entire process.  For 
now we have altered Main and subclassed it, overriding the startAnt method and 
removing the calls to System.exit.  An additional startAnt method in Main 
which does not invoke System.exit would give us the ability to launch ant in 
process and then continue with the rest of the installation process.
