My first idea was that this exception could get thrown if you call the
executeTarget method with a null argument, but this error seems to be
already managed by the BuildException (@see ant javadoc).

[ executeTarget ]
public void executeTarget(java.lang.String targetName) throws
Executes the specified target and any targets it depends on.
	targetName - The name of the target to execute. Must not be
	BuildException - if the build failed

So... Another answer would be : your "NullPointerException" occurs if
your Project object is null (java obviously can't call the
"executeTarget" method on a null Project object). Check if your Project
is initialized.

Third clue : the "test_config" string you give as an argument is a valid
String, but its contents may cause an error somewhere in the
executeTarget process, for example if this isn't a valid target name.
Or if the target is only defined as an internal target (no "description"
for it) : I don't know if executeTarget sees them.
