Uhm...is there some reason not to use the standard Ant idioms for this?

<project name="proptest" default="default" basedir=".">
  <description>Make sure properties are set.</description>

  <condition property="got.all.properties">
    <and>
      <isset property="somethingImportant"/>
    </and>
  </condition>

  <target name="check.properties" unless="got.all.properties">
    <fail message="You forgot to set some properties"/>
  </target>

  <target name="init" depends="check.properties">
    <echo>Init</echo>
  </target>

  <target name="default" depends="init">
    <echo>Hello world: ${somethingImportant}</echo>
  </target>
</project>

                                        Be seeing you,
