Subject Re: setting the system path in ant
Date Wed, 04 Oct 2006 19:53:24 GMT
Actually, that's all I need to do. What I am doing is running a <java> 
with fork="true". But, I don't see any way to change the path for the 
jvm. Do forked things use the local copy of the environment, and any 
changes you've made to it, or does it go back to the system?
