Subject Re: JUnitTask fork problem?
Date Sat, 18 Mar 2006 03:21:48 GMT
I'm confused. What's the issue, that the task somehow doesn't fork a
child JVM (I'd be surprised), or that the child JVM doesn't have a
security manager?

If the latter, you'd probably need to explicitly tell Ant to start up
the forked VM with a security manager. I vaguely remember Antoine
doing work to support setting security manager for tasks, but I'm not
sure the security manager would be passed down to a fork VM.

Search for security manager in the doco. --DD
