Subject compiler feature
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2001 12:26:47 GMT
Running a following target causes ant to create two instances of the java

= -->
	<!-- for testing
	<!-- USAGE: BUILD test -Dname=my.package.Test -Darg1=120
-Darg2=huhuu etc -->
= -->
	<target name="test">
		<java classname="${name}">
			<arg value="${arg1}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg2}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg3}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg4}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg5}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg6}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg7}"/> 
			<arg value="${arg8}"/> 
			<classpath refid="my.classpath"/>

In here BUILD is .bat file with a following call:

         call ant %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 -buildfile c:/myBuild/build.xml

Here is the my.package.Test class:

package my.package;
public class Test{
	public Test(){
      	System.out.println("Should be here only once");
	public void testing(){
		System.out.println("Testing, testing");
    	public static void main(String[] args){
		Test ts = new Test();

And surprise here is the result:
	Should be here only once
	Should be here only once
	Testing, testing

I didn't find any fix in nightly builds, and I didn't find it in bugdb. Has
anyone encountered this feature? How do I get aroung it?
