Compiler build Question

Tamer,

Did you also set boot.java.home, which appears slightly earlier in the 
file than is shown in your screenshot.
You need to set two, potentially different, values for installed 
versions of Java.  You need a version of
Java to build the compiler. Set boot.java.home for this. It can be JDK 6 
or later.   You also need a version
of Java to run the (tests for the) compiler. Set target.java.home for 
this. It should be JDK 7 or later.
