We're updating the issue view to help you get more done. 

Allow spawned execution of an local containers to enable the app server to outlive the calling CARGO application (Java API, ANT or Maven2/Maven3)

Description

Since Java1.5, the exec and java tasks have had a spawn option, that ensures that an application will outlive the ant run. It's pretty brutal how it is done, as there is no way to chain up the output channel of the spawned process and have it outlive ant.

if the <cargo> task somehow exposed the spawn option, cargo could be used to launch the app server, so ant itself could act as a launcher script.
