Method Detail

getJavaVersion

public static java.lang.String getJavaVersion()
Returns the version of Java this class is running under.

Returns:
the version of Java as a String, e.g. "1.1"

isJavaVersion

public static boolean isJavaVersion(java.lang.String version)
Compares the current Java version to the passed in String - assumes the argument is one of the constants defined in this class.

Parameters:
version - the version to check against the current version.
Returns:
true if the version of Java is the same as the given version.
Since:
Ant 1.5

isKaffe

public static boolean isKaffe()
Checks whether the current Java VM is Kaffe.

Returns:
true if the current Java VM is Kaffe.
Since:
Ant 1.6.3

getJreExecutable

public static java.lang.String getJreExecutable(java.lang.String command)
Finds an executable that is part of a JRE installation based on the java.home system property.

java, keytool, policytool, orbd, rmid, rmiregistry, servertool and tnameserv are JRE executables on Sun based JRE's.

You typically find them in JAVA_HOME/jre/bin if JAVA_HOME points to your JDK installation. JDK < 1.2 has them in the same directory as the JDK executables.

Parameters:
command - the java executable to find.
Returns:
the path to the command.
Since:
Ant 1.5

getJdkExecutable

public static java.lang.String getJdkExecutable(java.lang.String command)
Finds an executable that is part of a JDK installation based on the java.home system property.

You typically find them in JAVA_HOME/bin if JAVA_HOME points to your JDK installation.

Parameters:
command - the java executable to find.
Returns:
the path to the command.
Since:
Ant 1.5

getJrePackageTestCases

public static java.util.Vector getJrePackageTestCases()
Testing helper method; kept here for unification of changes.

Returns:
a list of test classes depending on the java version.

getJrePackages

public static java.util.Vector getJrePackages()
get a vector of strings of packages built into that platforms runtime jar(s)

Returns:
list of packages.
