Enabling Ashcroft from within Ant is easy. You probably already have a target running a
<junit> task somewhere in your build script. (If not you're in deep trouble). Ok, just amend it a little bit like this:
<junit fork="yes"> <jvmarg value="-Djava.security.manager=com.thoughtworks.ashcroft.runtime.JohnAshcroft"/> <classpath> <!-- In this classpath you must include the ashcroft jar file --> </classpath> </junit>
It is imperative that you run JUnit in a forked JVM, otherwise the
jvmarg will be ignored, and Ashcroft will not be activated. For maximum speed, we strongly recommend you also specify
forkmode="once" (requires Ant 1.6.2 or higher).
