Calling Shell script while executing antscript


Hi ,
Am trying to run a shell script inside antscript.

Its executing but the shell script is not working as expected.
kindly assist in this.
Code:
 <exec executable="/bin/bash">
    <arg value="copy.sh"/>
    </exec>
this is the one am giving in antscript to invoke the shell script.

where as the the shell script contains

Code:
echo "Please select the environment for deployment [ QA, SIT , PROD ] "
read environ
rm -rf blahblah.properties
if  [[ "$environ" == QA ]]
 then

       cp -rf * /dest/
       echo "QA config file has been copied"
elif  [[ "$environ" == SIT ]]
  then
           cp -rf * /dest/
          echo "SIT Config file has been copied"
elif  [[ "$environ" == PROD ]]
    then
        cp -rf  * /dest/
        echo " PROD config file has been copied "
else
echo " Please enter the correct environment as mentioned in CAPS "
fi
It is executing only the echo and else part alone ... its not prompting for the user input ... any help would be really appreciated !!

Try this at the top of your shell script
Code:
set -xv
This shows in detail exactly what the parser is doing.
(Try calling your shell script directly to see what to expect)
Does 'antscript' actually allow/work with interactive cmds like 'read' ?
