From Jan.Mate...@rzf.fin-nrw.de
Subject AW: Trying to invoke an external task
Date Wed, 14 Jul 2004 15:53:43 GMT
I dont know any z/OS program. On windows you should try a
  <project default="test">
      <target name="test">
          <exec executable="notepad"/>
      </target>
  </project>
a program which will be found, because its part from the OS and in the
PATH variable.

Change the "notepad" to something which will usually work. Then start
Ant with -verbose.
What´s the output?
