...I just tried it by defining the working directory as the location of 
my build.xml and then 'ant' as my command line (/project/@default='all').

It gives:

CreateProcess: ant error=2
Process ended with exit code -1

The build file works fine when used from the command line (JDK 1.4.2, 
Ant 1.6.0, cygwin on winXP in the case I tried).


I did some quick searching and found no clear solution. It is a simple 
build file that does a bunch of transforms. It uses only Core Tasks.

I also tried 'ant all' as the command line and get the same error.

Any ideas?


On another note, is there any info available about building plugins for 
Oxygen? Perhaps all we might need is the source for the existing 
plugins, especially (for me), the source for the schema documentation 
plugin. I don't mean the XSL file, rather the java to show an example of 
how we hook into Oxygen core. I have a few ideas for plugins; one being 
an Ant interface, another being using Oxygen as an interface for our CMS.
