Step 2. Install and Configure Ant
Ant is a frontend to the java compiler that makes the building process as easy as double-clicking a batch file (AntDist.cmd).
Step 2.1. Install Ant
First, go to the Apache's Ant website:
Unzip apache-ant-1.8.2-bin.zip under the C:\ drive
And rename the folder to ant:
This should be the end result:
Step 2.2. Configure Ant
Select this block of text and copy it:
@echo off REM Change the folder path in the following line if, for example, you have extracted ant without REM renaming the folder afterwards (even though renaming it is highly recommended) REM Never leave any space between the variable's name and the equal sign REM Otherwise, it will simply not work set ANT_HOME=C:\ant REM Change the folder path in the following line to the folder path of your REM own version of Java's JDK REM Never leave any space between the variable's name and the equal sign REM Otherwise, it will simply not work set JAVA_HOME=C:\Archivos de programa\Java\jdk1.6.0_25 REM Do not change the rest of this file set Path=%Path%;%ANT_HOME%\bin cmd /c ant dist pause
Paste it in a notepad document and save it as AntDist.cmd and with 'All Files' as the file type:
From now on, you can right-click on its filename to edit it:
Set ANT_HOME to wherever you have ant installed.
Set JAVA_HOME to wherever you have java JDK installed.
