I have cygwin installed on my XP box, and have been using it for a bit of
time. Mostly to compile class files, vi, and the great unix removes, etc.
Anyway, I have had this following problem for a while, and was hoping to get
it resolved once and for all.
I have "CLASSPATHS" and "PATHS" and some "HOME" directories set up. Eg:
When I run ant from a "cmd" window all is good. It picks up the value and
runs fine. But I do not want to use the "cmd" prompt, and would like to use
cygwin. But when I issue ant I get the dreaded error:
Error: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly. We cannot execute
I do not want to change all my HOME, PATH, values because some of the system
software uses them as they are. Can I get around this? Is there where it
makes sense to use a symbolic link?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
