I am trying to set up ANT on my computer and I want to set up some enviromental variables for it but I am not sure what to do.

This is what I did

Places ant here: G:\Program Files\apache-ant-1.6.5
Installed Java Here: G:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06

When to Enviromental variables and did this

Var Name: ANT_HOME
Var Variable: G:\Program Files\apache-ant-1.6.5

Var Name: JAVA_HOME
Var Variable: G:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_06

Var Name: PATH
Var Variable: PATH=%PATH%;%ANT_HOME%\bin

now when I go to cmd line and type in ant I get buildFile: build.xml does not exist!

build Failed

So I got the build file but I don't know where to put it or what I am suppost to do

thanks

Normally, build.xml should be in your current directory, ie. where you type ant.

You can do it differently, but why bother?
