 From my slightly rusted memory regarding Visual Studio, isn't the regular
way to choose a certain VS toolchain calling a batch script which sets
the environment variables for the toolchain to be used.

That is, when you open a command prompt and type "cl.exe" which usually
end up with a "Bad command or filename" error as none of the command
line utilities are normally set in $PATH.

So, I would guess that you would use that method for OpenJDK as well?
