I'm trying to install ANT, have downloaded src zip file 1.8.2.
I'm facing problem with the below instructions :
To run Ant, you can use the %ANT_HOME% variable like so to test the installation:
> %ANT_HOME%\bin\ant -version
For more flexibility, you can add the Ant %ANT_HOME%\bin directory to your %PATH% environment variable using the system application, just as you added the %ANT_HOME% variable. This means you can call the ant command from any directory like so:
> ant -version
If these commands do not display the version number of Ant you installed, check the value of %ANT_HOME% and that the %ANT_HOME%\bin\ant file is accessible.
I'm not able to access the ANT file in BIN folder.
I installed ANT Source files from the Apache homepage.
After unzipping into C:\Apache-ant-1.8.2, I run >BUILD in the command prompt (WIN7 OS).
This creates BUILD folder under Apache-ant-1.8.2 i.e. Apache-ant-1.8.2\BUILD, but there is not BIN folder created.
I do get BUILD FAILED at the end of the messages after running BUILD command.
