$ANT_OPTS to Ant Build

When I run my Apache Ant build outside of IDEA, I must have a particular property set (-Dscala.home=/opt/scala) in the $ANT_OPTS environment variable to run successfully. How do I achieve the same thing (i.e. passing options to the JVM when starting ant) from within the IntelliJ IDEA Ant Build runner? I have tried setting a property in the Ant Build Properties dialog and also passing -Dscala.home=/opt/scala in the "Ant command line" section under Execution to no avail.

I am ultimately trying to ditch Eclipse for Scala development and if I can just solve this last one problem... ;)

Tips are appreciated.

Hello Tony,

When I run my Apache Ant build outside of IDEA, I must have a
particular property set (-Dscala.home=/opt/scala) in the $ANT_OPTS
environment variable to run successfully. How do I achieve the same
thing (i.e. passing options to the JVM when starting ant) from within
the IntelliJ IDEA Ant Build runner? I have tried setting a property in
the Ant Build Properties dialog and also passing
-Dscala.home=/opt/scala in the "Ant command line" section under
Execution to no avail.

I am ultimately trying to ditch Eclipse for Scala development and if I
can just solve this last one problem... ;)

Tips are appreciated.


Not a tip, sorry, just JIRA reference: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-3663.

Alexander.
