Options present to build source, from Apache Ant are:
Installation of the Ant source distribution
Checking out of the Ant module, from SVN
Your installation directory shall be changed after the installation is done.
JAVA_HOME environment variable shall be set, to the JDK installation directory.
These commands are used to build by the help of Ant:
build -Ddist.dir=<directory_to_contain_Ant_distribution> dist (Windows)
sh build.sh -Ddist.dir=<directory_to_contain_Ant_distribution> dist (Unix)
In a specified directory, this will be creating Ants binary distribution.
Following actions are also performed.
Ant code will be bootstrap
Bootstrapped Ant is invoked with those parameters that are passed to the build script.
Create ant-launch.jar & ant.jar JAR files
Optional JARs are created which consist of relevant libraries for the build.
For the installation of the build to the current ANT_HOME directory, use:
build install (Windows)
sh build.sh install (Unix)
Lengthy Javadoc step can be avoided with:
build install-lite (Windows)
sh build.sh install-lite (Unix)
It will only let you install lib and bin directories.
