Subject Re: Cancelling Ant Build in mid-flight?
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2011 16:09:09 GMT

  No, I have to admit that I didn't try it outside of Eclipse, although 
I do have a second Ant setup outside of Eclipse so I could do it.

I'm mostly curious about why the build stalled and why nothing in 
Eclipse detected that it was in trouble and put out some kind of message 
about what was going on. Eclipse seemed to be oblivious to the problem 
and actually thought the build was still proceding. Nothing I tried 
seemed to change that, aside from actually restarting Eclipse.  So I 
suppose it's actually more of an Eclipse question than an Ant one. 
Perhaps it would be better to ask on the Eclipse forums, assuming I can 
figure out which one is best for asking Ant-related questions.....
