Subject Forking the exec task
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2003 21:15:57 GMT

I am trying to basically fork the exec task so that Ant does not wait 
for it to return.  Why?  Because I would like to use Ant to start a 
server type application and I would like the Ant script to return even 
though the started application is still running.

Maybe there is a simple way to do this or maybe there is a good reason 
why this should not be done.  I've looked into using the <parallel> task 
but that does not do the job.

A quick search through the email list archives reveals very little on 
this topic.

Thanks for any help,
