Given that you don't seem to have any more data for each of the Tests
- why don't you just do


then you can use Ant's property task

Even if you are going to group things together you can still use
properties just separate the properties into separate files and then
when you provide Test2, Ant can then lookup the appropraitely names and then load the values

Unless you want to do something else, I think you want the properties task
