Subject Re: trouble installing ant
Date Wed, 28 Jul 2004 19:29:55 GMT

First unzip and and put it in a directory.
say f:\ant-1.5

Then set the classpath settings for it.
A simple example is-just simply copy paste these in
cmd prompt. (consider java to be installed in f:\)

SET PATH=f:\java\bin;f:\ant-1.5\bin;
set JAVA_HOME=f:\java
set ANT_HOME=f:\ant-1.5
set PATH=%PATH%;%ANT_HOME%\bin;

Check if java and ant are there 
by simply typing 
f:\ant -version

You should see the ant version. If you see it then the
installing is perfect. Now u can go to any directory 
and run the corresponding build file. by callinf the
target or the build file itself.

with regards,
