Ant 1.7.1
JUnit 4.4
JBoss 4.2.1


Hi I have a project consisting of several subprojects. One of them is a Test-Project.
My Ant build.xml within this project works perfectly:


The JUnit test is

When I run the Test with the build.xml the log4j.xml (and the jndi.properties) are found.
Now I have a "main" build.xml which only purpose is to execute the builds of the subprojects in the right order (this build.xml is either in a folder parallel to the other subproject or in the root, both variations have the same effect):

When I run this build.xml everything works fine (compilation, deployment, test-execution ...) the only problem is that the the log4j.xml configuration is not found. Instead of finding it in the BafoegTest folder it is now searched for in the folder in which the "main" build.xml resides.



I really don't want to duplicate configuration files just to work around this problem. Does anybody know to solve this problem properly?

Can you reference/copy in the log4j.xml file via a property that has an absolute path?
