Start a Resin 3.x instance, wait for it to be started and stop it, waiting for it to be completely stopped:

  <resin3x dir="${cactus.home.resin3x}" action="start"/>
      <http url="http://localhost:${cactus.port}"/>
    <resin3x dir="${cactus.home.resin3x}" action="stop"/>
        <http url="http://localhost:${cactus.port}"/>

This is equivalent to the following (notice the use of the 'testurl' attribute:

<resin3x dir="${cactus.home.resin3x}" action="start"
<resin3x dir="${cactus.home.resin3x}" action="stop"
