Subject Re: [configuration] accessing emvironment variable (not java system)
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2007 20:36:22 GMT
Looking at http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/ant/core/trunk/src/main/org/apache/tools/ant/taskdefs/Execute.java?view=markup
procEnvironment()

Netware, os/2, z/os, unixes and windows are supported. OpenVMS and
MacOS <= 9 seems to be unsupported platforms. MacOS <=9 has no
environment variable at all !

This method also has been "un deprecated" on Java 5 and can be used on
such a runtime. We can invoke it if System.getProprty("java.version")
returns > 1.5.
