I'm trying to run some Junit tests with Ant that require a properties file to run (to pick up database info, etc) however the forked JVM doesn't pick up the file, am I doing something stupid? The tests that do not require this file run fine and running the tests in Eclipse is also ok...
It looks like you are passing in the properties file as an system property name, which will make it hard to look up. I would have expected to see something like this instead (replace 'configfile' with the proprty name your app uses to look up the file):
As an aside, it would be better to place your config file in the classpath and look it up from there - then you don't have to give the app the exact location.
