Ant1.6.2 added the notion of the ioredirector to exec and java, but no 
direct coupling of apps. You'd have to write your own filter to route 
the stuff...and ant equivalent of Unix named pipes

automation. There is nothing in Ant to do this. Some of the GUI unit 
test frameworks do enable it, however...
