Subject AW: Does ant 1.8.0 compile on Solaris 10 SPARC?
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2010 04:50:26 GMT
I never had tried to build Ant on Solaris - because I have no such system ;-)
So these are my opinions:
- Ant should be buildable on Solaris too
- Ant requires Java 1.4+
- Ant does not require any external libs for building - if not present it skips these classes/jars

- download the sources
- hava a JDK 1.4+ on your PATH (or the Solaris equivalent ;-)
- place the external jars in your ANT_SOURCES/lib directory
- open a shell in your ANT_SOURCES directory (the dir where Ants buildfile is)
- start "build dist"

This uses the "" wrapper which
- starts "" for compiling the most required Ant classes directly via javac
- builds a distribution using these compiled classes
