for the last 2 targets I think it should be:

<target name="runoc4j" depends="cleanoc4jlog">
 <apply executable="test_run" dir="${oc4j}" failonerror="true" parallel="true">
 </apply>
</target>

<target name="openbrowser" depends="runoc4j">
<exec executable="${browser}" spawn="true">
    <arg value="${file}"/>
</exec>
