Subject ant.system.gc()?
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2002 20:25:53 GMT
Is there anyway to tell ant to run the garbage collection? I have a fairly
complicated build script that must execute peer projects so that it can
properly import the dependent libraries. What is happening, is that every
peer build process that is called stays in memory until the entire build
process is complete. This results in an ever-increasing JVM, until the point
that the JVM throws an OutOfMemoryError. (This is occuring at about 80MB). I
COULD set the upper limit higher, but it seems a little ridiculous that ant
takes 80 MB to compile the source.

any ideas?
