Ant-contrib plugin with bamboo

On my machine, I have a plugin for Ant. It's called ant-contrib. It was easy to install. I just put the ant-contrib-0.3.jar in the lib folder of Ant. It lets me do some cool things with Ant, including if statements. Now, I want to run my build scripts using Bamboo. Currently my scripts fail because the version of Ant that bamboo uses does not have these capabilities. How do I install plugins like ant-contrib in bamboo?

You only have to point Bamboo to your customised Ant version. You have to define it as an Executable.

For example, if you're using local agents, go to Administration/Server Capabilities and add Ant executable.

The "Server Capablities" button is not visible for me. Is it because I don't have proper permissions? Or because I'm using OnDemand?

On OnDemand, you have to define the capability for the Image you're using.

I assume you've uploaded your Ant plugin on the EBS or created your own custom image?
