Hi All,

I want to refer the environment variable in created in Windows XP using
<exec> Ant task, but it does not seem to refer that.

My purpose is to run java.exe along with executing the application and
referring ZIP/JARs by the application at execution time from the PATH

<property environment="env" />

<target name="main">

         <exec dir="${project.root}/classes" executable="java.exe">

            <env key="PATH" path="${env.PATH} />

ilters.txt,file=trace.trcxml com.mycomp.test.MyApp" />



or there is some limit in terms of maximum characters specified on the
command line ?

Thanks for pointers in advance!
