Subject Re: Code too large

There's a 64K limit to what try/catch can store and you are running into
that limit.

What exactly are you trying to do? Do you want to fail if your command can't
run? Have your batchfile send an error code upon exit. Ant can detect that
and report it as a failure. Make sure you set* <exec failonerror="true">*.

Another possibility is to have an errorproperty and not fail the build on a
bad <exec> (*<exec failonerror="false errorproperty="exec.failed">*). That
will allow you to detect a failed command without going through the trycatch
business.
