Hi Ivan,
Thanks for your reply.

Yup, i already do that, but the only way i could make it work is by 
modifying the ant.bat and to set ANT_HOME and PATH accordingly. 
However, this has some drawbacks:

* it would be better not to mess with a frustrated user's env properties 
;-) and
* modifications to Ant distribution files should be avoided 
(maintainance etc)

So I'm looking for the best way to make this work without the above by 
calling some class directly instead of a script.
