Hi Wolfgang,

if I understand you correctly, you want to start Resin from the Ant 
script, and keep it running even after Ant has finished.

This is AFAIK not currently possible with Ant: you cannot start a 
process that lives longer than the execution of the Ant script. 
Furthermore, without using the <parallel>/<sequential> tasks (or 
Cactus's <runservertests>), starting a server process such as Resin will 
block the Ant script ad infinitum, because will wait for the process to 

I've had the same problem some time ago, I really hope Ant will support 
this kind of task in some future version.
