Eclipse - Configure ANT Home

One thing that I mentioned during my first presentation at CFUnited was to change the ANT home in eclipse preferences. Eclipse comes bundled with ANT however I like to keep ANT in one central location as

  • All ANT external jars can be placed under ANT/lib folder. In this way it becomes available to all Eclipse projects
  • It is easier to upgrade to a newer version of ANT if one becomes available
  • If I've to switch machines, I can just copy the ANT folder to a new machine without much fuss

These are the steps to change the ANT home for Eclipse

  1. Download the latest ANT distribution from here and unzip it to a folder in your drive e.g. c:\ant
  2. Go to Windows -> Preferences
  3. Browse to the ANT section either by clicking ANT or using the filter box on the top.
  4. Under Runtime you'll see an entry for ANT Home. Click the button "Ant Home" and browse to the directory where you have unzipped ANT distribution
  5. Click "Apply"

Hope that helps

    It's Andrei Dubovskov. I just want to talk about your second question and it's a very simple answer and it's not concerning our Ukrainian operation also but other markets, of course. In my opinion, the normal base for all results across the MTS countries, it's subscriber's loyalty. If you have good subscribers loyalty, you have very good possibility to translate it into your revenue and after that, you have very good possibility to translate that with marginality. And we are going to the same in the Russian market, of course.

    You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I
    in finding this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I'd never understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and extremely large for me.
    I am taking a look ahead for your subsequent submit, I'll try to get
    the hang of it!
