Hi everyone,
I want to use Ant to launch some external program (in exact appserver & tomcat) in separate window and the returns (leaving other program running). I've tried something like this

Anybody has an idea how to do this ?
Thanks in advance,

As long as a process run by ANT is running (say that five times fast ), ANT will not return. You can get ANT to launch several processes by using a combination of the parallel and sequential tasks. Quite useful for running tests in a distributed processing environment.
