In windows system, SET JAVA_HOME e.g. "SET JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_31" before running the ant build file.

Subject: RE: tools.jar not found

Run what with JDK?

Run it with the jdk.

All,



I have searched online and can't fine and answer so please bear with me.



When I run ANT it says it can't find tools in the JRE lib, why is it
looking there?



If I copy tools.jar from the JDK to the JRE lib it works fine but that
will break on the next update so I would prefer to fix it correctly.



I have rebooted and retested.



There are no extra JDK or JRE values in the path, path simplified to
only show useful values.



I dumped the SET values to text files and search and don't fine any
references to JRE there either.



In settings:

PATH = .;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%ANT_HOME%\bin;

Converts to:

PATH = .;C:\Program
Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_05\bin;C:\devenv\apache-ant-1.9.4\bin;



C:\Projects>SET JAVA_HOME

JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_05



C:\Projects>SET ANT_HOME

ANT_HOME=C:\devenv\apache-ant-1.9.4



Error:

C:\Projects>ant -version

Unable to locate tools.jar. Expected to find it in C:\Program
Files\Java\jre1.8.0_45\lib\tools.jar

Apache Ant(TM) version 1.9.4 compiled on April 29 2014



So what am I doing wrong, thanks.

John
