Subject Re: how to build ant

Hello Ramakanth,

you need to download and install somewhere on your hard disk a binary
version of ant to be able to execute this first step.

Once you have done this, you should do this :

1 - cd into the directory containing the source version of ant
2 - run this command<ant_install_dir>/bin/ant -Ddest=optional -f fetch.xml

on Windows <ant_install_dir>\bin\ant -Ddest=optional -f fetch.xml

what this does is copy the jars which are used by the build process of
ant into the directory lib/optional.



Regards,

Antoine
