See my previous reply for more on that, but I just had an idea:

Should Ant provide a general way to run tasks using different Java
platform versions?  (Tasks could take an additional attribute that
specified which version to use.)

If you need to build different parts of your system with different
versions, or maybe run tests on different versions, it might be

On the other hand, it would slow things down a lot, and would 
probably complicate internal Ant code a lot (passing arguments 
to a new VM instead of directly calling methods).

Oh well, probably not.
