Subject RE: Using ExecTask class

When composing an Ant task within your custom task, use the following idiom:

    // Override Task#init
    public void init()
                throws BuildException {
        _java = new Java();

    private void configureTask(Task helper) {

Cheers, --DD

Subject: Using ExecTask class


I want to use the ExecTask class from my
own task. At the moment I do the following:
1) Create a new ExecTask instance (et).
2) Calling et.setProject(getProject()).
3) Calling et.createArg().setValue("blah").
4) Calling setExecutable("blub").
5) Calling et.execute().

The program does not properly start. When 
I execute it with
<exec executable="blub">
  <arg line="blah"/>
(ie with the original ExecTask class)
it runs fine. What am I doing wrong, when
I create a ExecTask instance and setting its arguments?
