Subject Re: Fop missing Ant?
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2006 08:35:29 GMT
Something doesn't feel right here. FOP 0.20.5 DOES bundle Ant 1.5.1
(found in the lib directory). Only since FOP 0.90 alpha 1 do we require
that Apache Ant is preinstalled. Anyway it's a good idea to install the
latest Apache Ant and to use "ant" on the command-line instead of "build".
