Subject Java in JDK but ANT can't find it!
Date Thu, 14 May 2009 12:15:24 GMT
Hello Everyone,

I am running ANT programmatically in JAVA. So, my task is to build the
I'm able to do so, but it throws an exception saying:

/scratch2/nemer/test/xfire/build.xml:5: The following error occurred while
executing this line:
/scratch2/nemer/test/xfire/build-common.xml:81: Unable to find a javac
compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/opt/jdk1.6.0_06/jre"

But in the end it says: BUILD SUCCESSFUL (but it still throws that

I already set all of my environment variables to  /opt/jdk1.6.0_06/
(JAVA_HOME and also in PATH), which is a JDK! And even on the error message
it says that the java is set to /opt/jdk1.6.0_06/jre (which is a JDK, I
don't know where it gets the jre from).

So, does any one know how can I solve this problem? Is there a configuration
file in ANT that we need to set up! I'm stuck there!!

I'm running the ant 1.7.1.
