           Summary: Rmic task does not allow to specify JDK path
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: christoph.huesler@css.ch


The rmic task does not allow to specify the jdk to use when executing rmic. 

The only option is to set JAVA_HOME or CLASSPATH, which sometimes is simply not 
possible (e.g., standard version is 1.4.2, but one project needs 1.5 -> 
impossible to build automatically in the same standard environment).

Steps to reproduce the problem:

1. get some example project using rmi (there are some in the java tutorials)
2. set JAVA_HOME and/or CLASSPATH to a jdk 1.4 installation
3. compile the classes with javac from 1.5 
(executable="${path.to.1.5}/bin/javac")
4. execute rmic
5. see "error: Invalid class file format in /some/path/here/Foo.class.  The 
major.minor version '49.0' is too recent for this tool to understand."
