jdk-1.2 or higher ('java' must be in your PATH) ant-1.5.3 or higher (

UNIX bash-style: export PATH=/usr/local/java2/jdk/jdk-1.4/bin:$PATH export PATH=/usr/local/java2/share/apache/ant/bin:$PATH export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java2/jdk/jdk-1.4 (ant works without this but reports a warning) Windows: set PATH=e:\java\jdk\sun-1.4.2\bin;%PATH% set PATH=e:\java\share\apache\ant-1.5.4\bin;%PATH% set JAVA_HOME=e:\java\jdk\sun-1.4.2 (ant works without this but reports a warning)
