Subject Exec task does not fail inspite of non-zero error level
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2005 18:03:15 GMT

I am using an ant script to trigger off my builds and unit tests but for
some reason I am unable to get the exec task to work properly.
My ant script contains the following code snippet:
<!-- Build component -->

<target name="build" depends="init">

<exec executable="${root}/BUILDLOCAL.CMD" failonerror="true"





All my BUILDLOCAL.CMD does is set ERRORLEVEL=50.

This should cause my build task to fail however for some reason my build
executes successfully.

Could you tell me what I am doing wrong. I was under the impression that
failonerror=true should cause a failure if errorlevel is non-zero.


Thanks in advance,
