I do use the <java>  task.
But I do not want the parameters to be constant but I want
to pass them down from the actual command line when I
run the "run" task.

So I want to do something like
  ant run -a -b -c
which should result in "-a -b -c" to be passed to the <java> task.
Next time I want to do
  ant run -x a 12 23
and now "-a a 12 23" should be used by the java task.

The point is that I want to use ant to use the "infrastructure"
for setting up the actual run command but I want the
flexibility of passing parameters to the program as if
I would directly call it from the command line using
"java -cp ..... classname <all the args>"
