When you execute it from the command line it is actually the shell that is 
interpreting the redirection (<) sign. When you execute it from ant there is 
no such interpretation. There are two ways to solve this. The first is that 
you create a shell script like


mysql -u rtest -h helix -P 3306 -prtest -D rtest < $1

and then execute shell script with one parameter. The other way is to use 
execon on /bin/sh executable and supply -c option so your commanline looks 

/bin/sh -c mysql -u rtest -h helix -P 3306 -prtest -D rtest < ...
