I would run my JUnit tester like

java -classpath %CLASSPATH% -Dhostname=jetty -Dport=8080 org.junit.runner.JUnitCore com.thoughtworks.selenium.QATester

How would I convert this as ant script? the below script is not working at all. It shows hostnae and port as null???
----------------------
<target name="run" depends="start">
<java classname="org.junit.runner.JUnitCore">
<arg value="com.thoughtworks.selenium.Jasper"/>
<jvmarg value="-Dhostname=jetty"/>
<jvmarg value="-Dport=8080"/>


<classpath>
<pathelement location="C:\Selenium-RC\java\junit-4.1.jar"/>
<pathelement location="C:\Selenium-RC\java\b.jar"/>
<pathelement path="${java.class.path}"/>
</classpath>
</java>
</target>

Micky
Try the system property
<java>
<sysproperty key="hostname" value="jetty" />
<sysproperty key="port" value="8080" />

</java>

From the ant manual on java task and Junit Task jvmarg may be used if fork is enabled.

Thanks Joy and Carol. Both of your suggestions works for me.
