Hi Patrick,
        I do not have any answer to your questions but I have a few
        We are also using Starteam here and I managed last week to get ant
accepted as the standart way to precompile, compile and deploy our
application(in java).  I did not know there was a Starteam task... did you
write it yourself?   Can you point me to a reference on this?
        As for your problem with double quotes, did you try using single
quotes like this :
<arg line=' co -p
" -fs'/>

Subject: More issues with Ant and Starteam

Since I was unable to figure out the touch issue with the starteam task, I
have decided to abandon the task in favor of the command line interface.
Ant is complaining about the exec task below.

        <exec executable="stcmd" dir="${build.basedir}"> 
          <arg line=" co -p
" -fs"/>


The error I get dose not make much sense: 

        C:\weblogic\CoventryDevelopment\build.xml:90: Whitespace required
before attributes. 

I have determined that the issue is the quotes within the command line.  I
have tried replacing the \" with the &quot; macro, but I got "Reference to
undefined entity".  I even tried using &quote; just in case.  I am wondering
if anyone has an example of a command line that has embedded quotes in it?
I am using ANT 1.3 on Win2K.
