Description Charles Barber 2014-07-11 05:21:37 UTC
As stated in the manual, the exec and java tasks do not allow input and output redirection when spawn="true". This is understandable prior to JDK 1.7, but the new redirectXXX methods in java.lang.ProcessBuilder look like they could easily support this feature, to / from Files, or inheriting the standard input / output / error streams.
