Having JAVA_HOME\bin in PATH may be a good idea, but generally this
shouldn't have been necessary as ant.bat explicitly adds
JAVA_HOME\lib\tools.jar to CLASSPATH and invokes
JAVA_HOME\bin\java.exe to run Ant.

In what way?  All you should have to do is to change the value of
JAVA_HOME.  I do this every day to switch between four different JDKs
on my Linux box and the batch file looks as if it should work as well.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you are after.

Simply delete the generated class files before compiling if you want a
full compile.

Can we close the issues in bugzilla now?
