Subject Issues with <java> vs <exec>
Date Fri, 14 May 2004 12:01:35 GMT
Hi All!

So far I have the following target to run a GUI in a separate JVM that 
will outlast Ant:

<target name="tickerclock">
    <java classname="clock.TickerClock"
          classpath="${clink_jar}:${xerces_jar}:${xml_jar}:${classes}"
          fork="true"
          spawn="true">
    </java>
</target>



I have two problems:
1) How can I have it open a new command window to do this?
2) How can I specify the name of the new command window (or just the gui's 
frame)?
3) How can I send the output to a file?

I was using this instead:
    <exec executable="java">
       <arg line="-classpath 
${clink_jar}:${xerces_jar}:${xml_jar}:${classes} clock.TickerClock 'Ticker 
Clock'"/>
    </exec>

But the problem I found was the path separator in this form is *not* 
portable.. i.e. I am back to using ":" for Linux and ";" for Windows..
