Subject RE: Ant from Cron problem
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 14:18:02 GMT
I suspected an environment variable issue, but I would recommend having your system administrator
putting ANT_HOME (remember to export it!) in the /etc/profile or /etc/profile.d/rc.local startup
file and then it'll be available to all appropriate tasks.
