First on the command line try:
ant -help

This will show you the command line options. You will notice:
ant -buildfile  myfavoritebuildfile.xml

is the option you are looking for.

How to pass a file to an Ant build.xml process from command line?



Normally I use Ant by clicking on a pre-defined build.xml process inside 
e.g. Eclipse.

However sometimes I would appreciate to have the chance to call Ant and an 
Ant build.xml script
from command line and pass e.g. a file to it. Something like:

java org.apache.ant.executescript D:\myproj\tbuild.xml 
D:\myproj\test222\somefile.java

Can I do this somehow?

If yes: how exactly would the command lokk like and how would I refer 
to the passed file (=parameter) from inside build.xml?
