In this tutorial I will show you how you can install ant tool on your linux box. This installing ant in linux is based on the practical work.
Step 1:
Download ant from http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi. I have downloaded apache-ant-1.7.1-bin.zip for this tutorial.

Extract the zip file apache-ant-1.7.1-bin.zip) using unzip command.

[root@RoseIndiaLinux ant]# unzip apache-ant-1.7.1-bin.zip

Open the file /root/.bash_profile and add the following codes:

export ANT_HOME=/usr/local/ant/apache-ant-1.7.1
