Subject RE: AW: Ant start.bat ?!?
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2003 19:32:52 GMT
I've had similar things happen, but it was because the user that starts the
task (using scheduled tasks) isn't the same as the one that is logged in.
The user that starts the task didn't have the access to the environment
variables needed to run ant (java_home, ant_home, etc).  I moved the env
vars from user to system and all problems went away.

In a few batch files, I have a one-liner to run ant from a bat file - just
says "ant" and works fine.

Yes,  You must use a CALL  like any other execution of a a program withing
a .bat file. I found that out the hard way the other day. BAT would START
ant, simpy using the ANT  command, but exited the command shell immediately
afterward, rather than continuing on through my script. BTW, I notice
that ANT passes a success rc=1,  rather than Rc=0.   Strange ... I thought

the "ant" starts a new batch file (%ant_home%\bin\ant.bat). And after doing
"-help" that batch file exits the whole session.

You have to do a "call ant -help".
