Subject <parallel>/<sequential>/<copy>
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 09:51:58 GMT

Can anyone explain the following?

I am running my test cases by starting an application server in <parallel> with a <sequential>
set of tasks to wait for the server, run the tests, and shutdown the server. (There are snippets
of the relevant Ant targets at the end of the mail).

Before starting the server, I <copy> the jcoverage.ser file to the appserver directory;
after it has shutdown, I <copy> it back to my working directory.

Intermittently, I find that the last <copy> back to the working directory is not always
executed - there is no [copy] in the console when this happens. Consequently all my reports
go awry. Of course, this never happens when I run ant -debug ...

Environment is Win 2000, Ant 1.5.3, JBoss 3.2.1.

Thanks for any help,
