Process Fork Failed

Process Fork Failed

Hi there,

I have successfully been using ant(1.6.5) to run a number of test suites
for months. I use the JAVA_HOME is set to the IBM JDK and ANT_HOME is
set,



All of a sudden I try and I see the following error and I have no idea
what has happened



C:\build\build.xml:562: Process fork failed.



The target I am trying to run looks like (it has not changed since I
created it).



<!-- This target runs the EJB JUNIT tests -->

<target name="test-ejb" description="Run the Junit test cases">

<echo>Running the EJB test suite</echo>

           <!-- run the tests -->

           <mkdir dir="logs"/>

           <junit printsummary="withOutAndErr" fork="true"
haltonfailure="false" failureproperty="ejb.tests.failed"
showoutput="true">

                       <classpath>

                                   <path refid="test-path" />

                       </classpath>

                       <jvmarg value="-Xmx256M" />

                       <formatter type="xml" />

                       <test name="${ejb.test.class}"
outfile="${log.dir}/${ejb-test-results.file}" />

           </junit>

</target>



When I turn on the verbose flag in ant, I see the following

Any ideas as to what may be happening would be greatly appreciated.





Thanks
