I have following code to which I pass j.testcase parameter. Somehow the value I pass for j.testcase is not picked up by the target run. I pass the parameter as ant run -Dj.testcase=Test2. Any comments?

It works on my machine. -Dj.testcase=foo with the below code outputs "foo" and "match". Maybe you have a trailing space/period in your command line? Try adding an echo before the switch like I did to troubleshoot.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
