Arguably its a fault in the java runtime for not doing the conversion for us.
After all, in C/C++ code on windows, you can still go #include
"../dir/something.h" and have it handled properly.

In an ant build file, you can normally use either definition and get away with
it, because nobody wants to go

<delete file="..${file.separator}..${file.separator}test.jar" />
