installing ant on ubuntu

well, you could do it the easy way and have jenkins install it and the jdk for you.. but thats not what nerds to is it.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk

sudo apt-get install ant

but since there is already a jre only version of a previous java in the system, ant does not find tools.jar and we need to configure the JDK7 as the default java

sudo update-alternatives –config java

then in the menu the choice is the JDK7 version

after this ant works. sweet.
