Subject How to figure out how Ant is invoked...
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2007 21:59:18 GMT


We are using Ant in our build process to compile Java sources as well as run
a compiler for Adobe Flex.  The Flex part of our webapp handles the user
interface.  We noticed that running the Ant target from within Adobe's Flex
Builder IDE will generate output differently compared to running the Ant
target from a shell.

This difference is noticeable because it causes the browser to (apparently)
incompletely load the webapp.  The browser will show "Waiting for
http://localhost/tds/history.htm" on the status bar, and there are other
indications that the browser is waiting (favicon doesn't display, the tab
continues showing the animated load icon, the progress bar is incomplete).  

This issue only occurs when we execute the flex compilation from the shell
or via my IntelliJ IDE.  If we execute the same flex compilation target from
Adobe's Flex Builder 2 IDE, or from inside Eclipse, the issue does not

I have them all set to use the same installation of Ant, so I can only think
that somehow the different development environments are invoking Ant
differently.  Is there a way to check for this?
