Pinned topic Changing implementaion of ANT in RAD 8.5 from the default to ANT 1.8.4

‏2013-01-21T01:52:47Z |
I am using RAD 8.5. I want to use ANT version 1.8.4 with ANT scripts in RAD.

  • What is the current version of ANT in RAD 8.5?
  • If I download ANT source and build it in RAD, is it possible to associate that to the ANT build and debug into that ANT source from within RAD when running a script?

I need to do this to figure out why the Java 6 wildcard path works with simple jdk but not when using an ANT task.

Is it possible to do what I want to do?

What are the detailed steps to set it up, if it is possible?

Thank you

    You can check the version of Ant by doing <RAD_HOME>/bin/runAnt -version.
    For RAD 8.5 this will give you:

    
    HeadlessWorkspaceSettings: INITIAL autoBuild=
    
    true maxFile=1048576 HeadlessWorkspaceSettings: TEMP autoBuild=
    
    false maxFile=-1 *Apache Ant version 1.7.1 compiled on June 27 2008*   BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 0 seconds HeadlessWorkspaceSettings: RESTORED autoBuild=
    
    true maxFile=1048576
    


    What this means is that the officially supported version of Ant in our product is v1.7.1.

    You can try to change it by following instructions on: http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.user%2Ftasks%2Ftasks-ant-version.htm
    If you do change it in this way and continue running builds with the headless RAD tools, verify that the new version is being picked up again by using the "runAnt -version" command

    As I said, we only officially support the version v1.7.1, any other version is not officially supported and has not been tested.
