Batch script to change Java Home between different JDKs

I recently happened to be working on multiple releases with some of them requiring the code to be compiled with JDK 6 whereas the more recent releases requiring code to compile with JDK 7. So i wrote up the following batch script to make the job of switching between the 2 JDKs easier. Before i run my ant build script i run the below script to set to ‘7’ for JDK 7 or ‘6’ for JDK 6.@ECHO OFFecho %1%if"%1"== "" ( echo "Syntax: javahome 7 or 6" Goto :end) if"%1" == "7" ( echo "Setting JDK 7" set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_01 GOTO :printver) if"%1" == "6" ( echo "Setting JDK 6" set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_23 GOTO :printver):printverecho %JAVA_HOME%set NEW_PATH=%PATH%FOR /F "delims=;" %%P IN ("%PATH%") DO ( @ECHO path = %%~P)set PATH=%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%NEW_PATH%echo %PATH%java -version:end
