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.
