upgrade to Apache Ant 1.8.2 on ubuntu natty

11 Aug 2011

            Ubuntu natty is packaged with Apache Ant 1.8.1. So if you need to update the Ant to 1.8.2 just apt-get upgrade ant won't work. So you need to add other PPA which provides Ant 1.8.2. Here is a PPA provided by the Eclipse Team.

Disclaimer : 
            This PPA is not Official and use at your own risk. (I just installed Ant 1.8.2 with this PPA and so far no issues for me.)

How to use : 
         It can be used just in two steps

now you can use sudo apt-get upgrade ant for upgrade Apache ant.

You can test whether the installation yield what you expected using ant -version command
