Install and Configure Jenkins using Jenkins.war if you have not installed Jenkins yet.
Once installation is successfully completed with initial configuration, On Jenkins Dashboard, click on Manage Jenkins
Click on the Global Tool Configuration Link.
There are two options to configure.
- You can Install Automatically by clicking on the checkbox and selecting specific version
- If Ant is already installed then give its path directly so we can configure it while creating a new build for Java Projects
Uncheck the checkbox for installing Ant automatically as we assume that Ant Installable Zip is already downloaded and extracted so Ant is available. Give Path to the Ant Folder available in your system.
If we have multiple Versions of Ant then we can configure them by clicking on Add
Click on Apply and Save.
