You can use the windows system command in the following way.

    <target name="execute.sys.command">
  	   <exec dir="${basedir}" executable="xcopy.exe">
      	   <arg line="c:\temp" />
	         <arg line="d:\temp" />
      	   <arg line=" /S /Z /Y /I" />
 example note :
   In the above target I have used xcopy.exe Windows program to copy
file from c:\temp to d:\temp. You can pass arguments to command using
<arg line>
   You can adapt this (command arguments etc.) as per your needs.

Hope this helps.
