How to Install Apache Ant

Its really simple.

2. Download Ant binary distribution form here.
3. Uncompress the file downloaded.
4. Set the environment variables.
         Click new button to add new environment variable. Type "ANT_HOME" as the variable name and give the path of the directory where you uncompress Ant as the value. Then edit the path variable. For Windows add %ANT_HOME%/bin and for Linux add ${ANT_HOME}/bin to the value value of the path variable. At the end the value of the path variable should be shown like this. C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_22\bin ; %ANT_HOME%/bin.
