           Summary: JAVA_HOMEdirectory name ending with jre causes problems
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: vprice@us.ibm.com


If I set JAVA_HOME to a directory with a name that ends with "jre" then Ant 
cannot locate the tools.jar.  It appears that Ant is seeing the "jre" at the 
end and assuming it is a subdirectory, then backing up 4 positions to what it 
thinks the parent directory is.  For example, if my directory name is:
    c:\myTestJRE 
then Ant gives me an error that it cannot locate the tools.jar, expected to 
find it in:
    c:\myTes\lib\tools.jar
Note that character prior to the "jre" is changed to a backslash.

If I change my directory name to c:\myTestJRE2 then it works OK.
