Not at all! For instance inegrating into VAJ there is just one VM for
developing AND running ANT. I think it is similar in other IDEs. This is the
reason why Wolf Siberski and I developed the GUI for the ANT VAJ
tool-integration using AWT and not SWING - to be independent of the VM used
by the IDE!
