Subject Re: How to set environment via batch script
Date Wed, 30 Jun 2004 03:23:00 GMT
When you start a new process only that process get new environment - it 
is not propagated back into parent process. You need to execute env.bat 
just before ANT or within <exec> task, if the task requires env.bat to run.
