Subject Re: Ant version for linux
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 17:33:14 GMT
Ant is actually a Java application and will run on ANY system that runs Java.

The "ant" command itself is a shell script that runs the Ant java
program under your Java interpreter. A ant.bat script does the same
thing for Windows.

The output of the command you show is the output of the "java
-version" command.

Try running "ant --execdebug -version" and see what you get as output.

It should look something like this:

exec "/usr/bin/java" -classpath "/usr/share/ant/lib/ant-launcher.jar"
-Dant.home="/usr/share/ant" -Dant.library.dir="/usr/share/ant/lib"
org.apache.tools.ant.launch.Launcher -cp "" "-version"
Apache Ant version 1.7.1 compiled on June 27 2008
