I am new to ant...

Is there any way to print the actual command executed when a ant task runs..?

for example when javac task in build.xml is executed the actual javac command with all arguments should be printed..

"pavan code", please check your private messages regarding an important administrative matter.

You can use the <echo> element to print the properties.
