Subject How to pass Java system properties to a task defined in a taskdef ?
Date Thu, 23 Jul 2009 13:54:22 GMT

I am launching Ant with a modified user.home property. This property is
apparently not passed down to one of my tasks, defined in a taskdef. Why?
Does Ant fork a new VM for executing such tasks? In any case, how can I pass
this property to the task being executed, it's essential for me.

I had a look at the source but could not really understand where to look to
understand how things worked.
