Subject Ant error reporting issue when using XML log output through exec call
Date Wed, 13 Dec 2006 23:36:56 GMT
Hi all I'm having trouble getting proper error feedback when running ant
through an exec task that uses XML log file output.  Here is my current

<exec dir="." executable="${env.ANT_HOME}\bin\ant.bat"
failonerror="false" resultproperty="exec-result">
  <arg line="-f ./../../../Client/Build/build-flash.xml" />
  <arg line="-logger" />  
  <arg line="-verbose" />
  <arg line="-logfile c:\cygwin\home\roberts\${logfile}" /> 

Unfortunately when I run the task which encompasses this exec task it
always returns success.  Even if there are errors reported by running
the build-flash.xml I am running.  I am thinking this is something to do
with logging the output to an XML file as when I take out the XML
logging I do properly receive an error as a result of running
build-flash.xml.  I can even explicitly put a "<fail/>" task in the
build-flash.xml file and this exec call will still report a sucees.  Has
anyone encountered this problem before?  My lack of any experience is
preventing me from progressing.  Any help is appreciated.
