What does "it will drained" mean?

I will make a whole lot of assumption because unfortunately you gave us very little to work with.

Assumption #1: the code you posted is within an build.xml file

Assumption #2: you are using Ant within eclipse to build you app

Assumption #3: you are now trying to run the ant script from a command line, and ${project_loc} is not being resolved

If all of those assumptions are true, then I suspect that project_loc is a property that Eclipse is supplying automatically when it runs the ant script. Therefore you have two choices:

1: Don't use ${project_loc}. Most likely it is the same as ${basedir}, so use that instead.

2: Pass "-Dproject_loc=xxx" as part of the ant command line

hey,
at first, thank´s for your fast answer.
i don´t build with ANT the application, because the application is a RCP (=Rich Client Platform) application.
For this reason, i just use the export manager from the *.product-file which is provided from eclipse.
it´s important, that the path to the application dir is not hardcoded, because the application will lie at different working stations at different places.
therefore the path has to be set finally at startup time from the exported application.

regards, tobi
