using embedded env
 <env key="PATH" path="${env.PATH}:${basedir}/bin"/>

use in property
<property environment="env"/>
 <echo message="INCLUDE = ${env.INCLUDE}"/>
 <echo message="PATH is set to = ${env.PATH}"/>

note..the env variable is case-sensitive
so path is not Path is not PATH

 I again tried to set PATH and INCLUDE env variables. But when I echo the env
variables after modifying the variables, changes are not reflected in the log
 My ANT script change is:
 property environment="env"/>
 <exec executable="cmd">
       <env key="include" path="${new.includepath}"/>
 <echo message ="include=${env.include}"/>

 Similarly I have tried for Path env variable. But it is not working.

 If there is any other way to set variables, please let me know. Due to this
issue, it is hampering my work.........
