Using multiple JDK for the same build script

I have JDK 1.3.1 on Unix and (JDK 1.4.2) on windows. I have build.xml file which should take the different JDK's based on the OS. I got the following solutions for it.
1. Declare <property> in
script like below and change it accodingly.
<property name="java.home" value="JDK_HOME_PATH"/>
2. I create a properties file for each env like below.
whenever i run the build.xml, i will comment the other properties file.
is there any other way i can do this without any modifications on the build file?
Thanks in advance.

Do this. In build.xml, have:
<property file="build.properties" /> <condition property="java.home" value="java.home.linux"> <os family="unix" /> </condition> <condition property="java.home" value="java.home.windows" > <os family="windows" /> </condition>
Then in build.properties have (using your locations, of course):
Then if you change or move the JDKs, you need update only the properties file.
P.S. Even this would work:
<property file="build.properties" /> <condition property="java.home" value="java.home.linux"> <os family="unix" /> </condition> <property name="java.home" value="java.home.windows">
In this, the Windows setting is the default.
