Subject Re: AW: specifying jvm for running ant tasks
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2007 13:52:37 GMT
Here's a snippet (from a macrodef and hence @{..}) of what I do when I 
need to exec Ant

          <java classname="" fork="true"
             <arg value="-f"/>
             <arg value="@{antfile}"/>
             <arg value="@{target}"/>
             <sysproperty key="area" value="${area}"/>
             <sysproperty key="team" value="${team}"/>
