Subject Detecting JDK Version using ANT
Date Wed, 15 Jun 2005 19:49:05 GMT

Is there a clean way to detect what version of Java is being used when running a build file?

Some possible solutions include:

1) parsing the JAVA_HOME variable to detect the version number
2) Checking the existence of a file which is specific to a version

Both methods are somewhat brittle.

Is there a sureshot way of knowing whether ANT is being invoked using Java 1.5 or not?

Thanks in advance,
