Subject RE: Result: 1

Hmm OK. I guess I'm a little confused now. I thought that the return
codes were determined by the operating system as the ant manual
http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/exec.html said that "error code 2
means 'no such program'. Is this meaning of error code 2 simply a
convention that programs follow? Thus a more precise saying would be
that error code 2 means 'no such program' for most programs.

Given the error message I'm not sure which program is returning the
error code since it is complaining that it doesn't recognize / can't run
the executable I'm trying to execute.

What I'm trying to do is call a bat file from ant.
<exec dir="${src.dir}" executable="run.bat" os="Windows 2000,Windows
XP"/>
The full error message is 
     [exec] 'run.bat' is not recognized as an internal or external
command,
     [exec] operable program or batch file.
     [exec] Result: 1

I am sure that run.bat is a bat file. Does what I want it to from the
command line. It doesn't matter what its contents are it gives the same
error when all I had is 1 line:
java proj.client.Client

I know I could run the above command in a Java task, it is trivial
because I was trying to eliminate the contents of the bat file as the
troublemaker.

The external program that you called from your Ant script returned a
value 
of 1. If you're interested in what that error means you'll have to
examine 
that program. Ant is just relaying it back to you. You could also
provide 
the calling <exec> task and more of the output if you want to dig
further.
