    Description

    Apache Ant is a command-line tool that is used to automate the build and deployment of applications. This plugin calls the Ant executable to run one or more targets defined in a specified Ant script file and is very useful for quickly integrating legacy automation into your HCL Launch Processes. HCL Launch agents include distribution of Ant, which is used by default, but other versions can be used by providing the path to the Ant installation directory in your Process Step.
