Subject Re: How to use ant in web application without system path setup under linux
Date Sun, 12 Aug 2007 13:58:51 GMT
I'm not sure why you cannot simply install Ant as a complete package.  
I haven't used CentOS, but I know Ant installs with no problems on  
Redhat. And, you can install Ant completely local to your $HOME  

The Ant binary distribution runs under any system that has JDK 1.4 or  
greater installed (and probably even works under JDK 1.3). You don't  
need administrative or root permission to install Ant either since it  
can reside in any directory, and if installed under Windows, does not  
need access to the registry.

So, why not just install all of Ant?
