Add following to the top of your build.xmk
<property environment="env"/>

Subject: How do you access environment variables ant build.xml files 

I am using ant 1.6.1 and want to use environment variables in my build.xml
file to reference jarsigner.exe. I set my JAVA_HOME environment variable to
my downloaded jdk folder. I am using the following in my build.xml file to
reference the JAVA_HOME environment variable <property name="java"
value="${env.JAVA_HOME}"/> and the following to reference "java" 
<exec dir="." executable="${sign}/bin/jarsigner.exe">
When I run my build.xml file I get an error 
Execute failed: CreateProcess:
${env.JAVA_HOME}\bin\jarsigner.exe -
I thought I was doing everything correctly, can anyone advise on how to
reference environment variable in ant, thanks
