Status update for both JDK 1.1.8 and JDK 1.2.2 on Windows NT:

With the latest cvs, ant -buildfile D:\jakarta-tools\buildscripts\main.xml
now works

With the resulting executables: Watchdog passes 100% of both the servlet
and jsp tests.  Tomcat-test passes all but bigDeclaration.jsp, which also
fails on SunOS.

ant -buildfile D:\jakarta-tools\buildscripts\main.xml test will cause the
tests to be run, but the output is not captured.  For some reason, any
attempt to run Java from within a batch file with the output redirected
seems to behave as if a "START /WAIT" were issued instead - i.e., a new
command window is opened and the output appears there.

I'm investigating creating a new taskdef which will directly invoke the
java code of your choice without the need for runtest.bat or
Setting up the temporary property overrides and passing parameters may
require nested XML to do this properly.  Any pointers or suggestions will
be welcome.

Forgive me, but it looks like the the Linux build needs some attention...
