Ant doesn't have any concept of background processing.  Even if you use 
the java task with fork=yes, ant still waits for the separate process 
(JVM) to finish.  So your aproach of using the java task won't work.

Were the class-not-found errors for the class that implements wlrun 
(WLRun) or for weblogic?  If they're for WLRun you may need to get the 
optional.jar from the ant website (at  you want 
to download the file
jakarta-ant-1.3-optional.jar) and make sure it's in your classpath.
