Keep running task in the background

Hi all
Is it possible to define task that will keep running in the background in ANT?
For example I would like ant to generate some beans – I need the server up for this task
So I start the server using the 'start' task:


But 'generateClient' task wont run because its waiting 'start' to finish
How can I tell ANT to continue processing targets after X seconds?
Thank you for your help

(Its much harder to find things when you are not native speaker...)
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
