Running the script led to a lot of warnings about a missing library. I asked the person, if there are any dependencies for ant-contrib. His response was "yes, you need to install ant-contrib".
First of all, I didn’t have ant installed. But that was easy with
irichter@irichter-MacBookPro:~ brew install ant
Unfortunately, ant-contrib wasn’t available via homebrew, so I had to download it and place it… where?
Ah, in the
lib folder of your ant installation. Okay, that might one solution. I remembered, that years ago I was using it in a different way. There was another location where ant was looking for additional jars.
This worked for me
create or locate the
copy all additional jars in this directory
From now on, ant will be able to find ant-contrib and I don’t have to mess around with the ant installation directory. Clean, nice and simple solution.
|I don’t know, if this will work on Windows in the same way.|
Thanks for reading!
