Ant + HSQLDB - Seperate Process

I am starting HSQLDB via ant using the following:



This works however if I start it in IDEA the process just sits so when writing some tasks where I need the DB to start, I do some work, and then I shut it down, the process halts after HSQLDB starts. The rest of the dependent tasks never execute until I shut HSQLDB down.

Notice I am already using fork = "true". I'm wondering if there is somethinge else I can do so that the process doesn't hold up execution of all the other tasks.

Maybe this isn't an Ant problem?

The "fork" will just create a new JVM for the DB server. I think you will also have to set the "spawn" to true so that it will create a new process.

Spawn won't work because of the child elements of the java task. Already tried it.

Thanks.

Hi Gregg,

I'm curious, have you tried running this outside of IDEA? I've been tried up by Eclipse's handling of ANT forks in the past...

Yes. It still blocks the ant process from completing.
