Subject RE: Ant Featured in Out-of-the-Box

Now how excellent can you get!? :-)

I have been considering using ant for some installs, but had wondered if it would really be
suitable, now I'll look again at the matter.

Question (which may be answered on your site, but I haven't read it all yet) how do you manage
to ensure that you have a JRE/SDK available for ant when running from a CD-ROM and how do
you set Windows environment variables so that they will persist across sessions?
