You cant set env variables in <exec>.
<exec> start a new process. Env variables are only visible in that process.
If that process quits the variables are lost.

You cant modify the environment of the running (Ant) process.


You have the same problem with batch files. There is a tool "setx" which
can set environment variables on system level. Maybe you could set
env vars for Ants NEXT run. (setx doesnt change current running processes).
