Subject AW: ant setup

Additionally Vista "hides" the "Program Files" directory. It can be that it is available under
names.
E.g. in Germany the Explorer shows "Programme" while the cmd.exe shows "Program Files" - very
obscure ...

Personally I have installed my different Ant versions into c:\ant\<version> and my JDKs
into c:\jdk\<version>.
c:\ant\165           Ant 1.6.5 for checks
c:\ant\170           Ant 1.7.0 current version
c:\ant\18.1          my own build of SVN TRUNK
c:\ant\setant.bat    Batchfile for switching between Ant versions (changes PATH+ANT_HOME)
c:\jdk\130           Ant Core must be 1.3 compliant, so I need a version for test this
c:\jdk\150_12        Our company standard: Java 1.5
c:\jdk\160_02        Newest major release (I could update to 160_03 ...)
c:\jdk\docs-170_b17  Docs shouldnt change so much and be bwc ("@since 1.6")
c:\jdk\setjava.bat   Changing JDK version
