I wrote a task to do this. It also (since I needed this also...) lets 
you specify standard input to the java process. Its called JavaInput...

It entends the Java task to add parameters "spawn" (boolean) this spawns 
off the Java code in a seperate thread (daemon), "sleep" (long) 
milliseconds to wait before returning (so the daemon has time to start), 
and nested "<input line="blah">" tags for specifying standard input.
