Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48746] exec task sometimes inserts extraneous newlines
Date Tue, 25 May 2010 21:04:42 GMT

Just to answer the question of why a test would be looking at ant's output, the
test suite is for a build tool that invokes ant (as well as doing many other
things).  I already have filters in the test suite to compensate for
unpredictable aspects of ant's output, such as durations.  If it is deemed that
the output of <exec> is not reliable when output to the screen, I will just
modify my test suite to normalize it in some way.  For my original purposes, I
don't care about it in the general case.  I just need to make sure ant is doing
what it is supposed to do when invoked from my other tool.

In other words, running ant is the objective in this case, not a means to an
end.  So I care about ant's output.  But since I'm not testing ant, I can work
around its quirks without damaging the integrity of my open application's test
