I'm not sure what you mean by "directory doesn't actually change".

If you are talking about the current working directory of the JVM
running Ant, you are absolutely correct, it doesn't change - and there
wouldn't be an easy (portable) way to do so anyway.

If you are talking about the called project's basedir, this depends on
the combination of attributes on your <ant> task - see the table under
the heading "Basedir of the new project" in the manual for <ant>.
