Quick Step by Step ANT Setup guide

Install JDK 1.7 and above version for better security and for the latest TLS security protocols. Download Link

Download apache ANT from here

Download ANT Migration Tool from here. Save the .zip file locally, and extract the contents to the directory of your choice.

Setup Environment variable ‘ANT_HOME’ and JAVA_HOME’

To setup environment variable go to Control Panel->System and Security->System->Advance System Setting->Environment variable

Set ANT_HOME variable path to parent folder of ‘bin’
i.e. apache-ant-1.10.7-bin\apache-ant-1.10.7

Similarly Set JAVA_HOME variable path to jdk directory.
i.e. C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_241

Add Apache bin folder path to PATH variable i.e. apache-ant-1.10.7-bin\apache-ant-1.10.7\bin

Test whether ANT is installed properly or not by running ant -version command in command prompt. If you receive error like ‘unable to find tools.jar’, make sure you copy the tool.jar from jdk/lib folder to jre/lib folder.

Congratulations! You have successfully Setup ANT in your system.
