I was playing around with the samples from "Java Development with Ant" and discovered that if I create a console mode java program, the java tag in my build.xml works fine.

However, if I create a AWT or Swing program, ant marches right on and does not pause to execute the program. I see it flash briefly and then ant kills it.

Why is this? Can I make ant execute an AWT or Swing program so I get to kill it before ant does?

Thanks,
Siegfried

What does your Ant task definition look like?

Ran into a similar situation so I added an input after the swing task: https://ant.apache.org/manual/Tasks/input.html <- far from elegant but it worked for my purposes
 
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
