This will set Java properties in the form -DLANG=${Search.locale}
which will probably not be what you want, you are looking for
environment variables.

Unfortunately <java> doesn't support setting environment variables,
even if invoked in forked mode, you'll have to fall back to the <exec>

You should try -debug and look at some properties.  In my environment
I get

Setting project property: user.timezone -> Europe/Berlin
Setting project property: user.language -> de
Setting project property: user.region -> DE

(you can as well <echo> them to avoid all the other stuff -debug
