Iam executing ant in say c:work directory. There are some xml files in say c:workxml folder and I need to execute a java file from c:workxml folder using ant. Iam not able to do this since my basedir attribute of the project is set to c:work and java task doesnot allow me to specify a base directory info. How can i do this?

Earlier response awaited.

You could use the task, which has a 'dir' attribute that sets the working directory. Or you could modify your Java program to accept a command-line argument to the path, and pass it to the program using the sub-elements of the task.
