That's right. Windows is oddly case sensitive. Use <diagnostics> to list 
everything that is set, or <echoproperties prefix="env." /> just to list 
the environment.

no. So worrying about the case is unimportant. You want to run ant in a 
different environment, you need to make a (renamed) copy of ant.bat and 
set the path up there.
