That'll be the ant-that-has-to-support-java-1.2 on 
everything-and-build-with-no-dependencies, won't it?

we have our own exec logic in smartfrog BTW. There's no need for most 
programs to have logic that handles execution of java programs on 
netware, or the correct handling of error codes on VMS, not unless they 
have to, and it makes the interior of the exec and java classes in Ant 
kind of messy. Worse yet, you have to deal with support calls related to 
Netware filesystems, VMS [1]or obscure IBM mainframes [2]. You do not 
want to go there. It is bad enough having to keep win98 vmware images
