Hello,

I have an Ant related question. According to the Ant manual:

Note that .bat files cannot in general by executed directly. One normally needs to execute the command shell executable cmd using the /c switch.


Here is a code snippet:


This seems to work just fine. I am executing a .bat file directly from the exec task. Now the manual states "general" usage, but I am wondering if I should use the recommend method or is it safe to do what I am doing?

Thanks!

That might be really old text because if I recall correctly that was a problem many years ago. If it is working for you, go for it.
