  I'm trying to run a class from built jar using ant but my script doesn't
pick up even my echos around it - what am I doing wrong?
this is the bit that's already in my script & works:
<target name="jar" depends="compile, expandjars" description="generate JAR
file" >
   <exec executable="${AppPath}/host/vergen.exe"
     <arg value="${AppPath}/src/version.cpp"/>
     <arg value="-report"/>

   <property name=""
value="${build}/HostSimulators_${AppVersion}.jar" />

   <jar destfile="${}">
     <fileset dir="${build}/classes" />
     <fileset dir="${build}/jar"/>

     <fileset dir="src">
        <include name="**/*.jpg"/>
        <include name="**/*.properties"/>
        <include name="**/*.gif"/>
        <include name="**/*.txt"/>
        <include name="**/*.ghost"/>
        <include name="**/*.dec"/>
        <include name="**/*.nan"/>

        <attribute name="Main-Class" value="com/tech/simulators/Main"/>

now when I run my in Eclipse - I use the Run -> Run with program
parameters {-cfg /simulators/simulators.cfg}

how can I do this Run in Ant? I've tried:
<target name="run" depends="jar">
   <java classname="Main" classpath="${}" fork="true"/>
but with no luck!!

please help,
