Hm. I think I found the answer myself: use the <parallel> task and RTFM!

Subject: Async tasks - how?

Hi all,.

I'm sure I saw this question only a few days ago, but I can't find it
anywhere anymore, neither on the web, nor in the e-mail archives.

How can you launch an asynchronous task from Ant? I'd like Ant to launch a
CORBA server, and while that is running, execute a series of test scripts
that use that server. We've a whole bunch of ugly Makefiles, .bat files etc.
that do this currently for different platforms, and Ant would be a neat

Any solution (or underway in 1.5) except writing some external (batch)
script and executing that one?

Thanks a million again
