Subject Re: exec - Cannot run program 'start' CreateProcess error=2
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 07:28:29 GMT
Though  *vmlauncher="false"* worked for me, it has the following problem:

This means control is being done by OS (not JVM). My script start multiple
managed servers in a sequence. Once the 1st server is started and in the
'RUNNING' mode, Ant should get the control back so that it can start the 2nd
server. If JVM has control, it passes the control back to ant, as it can
identify the managed server has been started. In this case, as I give
*vmlauncher="false"
*my 1st server is getting started, but the control is not coming back to
Ant. So, 2nd and 3rd servers are not getting started and Ant is waiting
forever to get the control back.

Also, *spawn="true"* doesn't work for my context, because, I have
output/error redirection.

Any suggestions pl.

cheers
