Subject RE: Java in JDK but ANT can't find it!
Date Thu, 14 May 2009 14:28:16 GMT
When I had this problem, I KNOW that JAVA_HOME was set correctly. I
still ran into the problem. The OP here also said JAVA_HOME was set
correctly. There is some missing step here that prevents the ant Project
instance from knowing which Java to use.

It looks like you are pointing to the jre not the jdk.
Try repointing the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the jdk directory
