Subject Re: Memory leaks with ant 1.5.x! Searching for a fix

I see.  I also see that the process destroyer leak is nominally fixed in
1.6 -have you tested this?

You should know that some leakage is out of our hands -javac is a case in
point; it creates lots of static content that never gets cleaned up, pre
java1.4. But we need to do as much as we can to make sure that the ant core
does not leak and can scale up to big builds or extended use.

Any leakage in things like <ant> and <taskdef> over existing task
definitions would things I am very interested in finding and killing.

Can you indicate what the problem is
and indicate what you really mean with a memory leak ?
I use eclipse 2.0.1 build 200208291828 with a ANT 1.5.1 (external
installation not an integrated version thru the plug-in) and I never
noticed anything similar to that !
