How to create Ant 1.9 executable on bamboo elastic agent?

How can we add the ANT 1.9 executable to bamboo elastic ? The current version on the image is 1.8.4 I believe but we need 1.9.1.

Does this require us to create a custom image ? Is there an upgrade to bamboo that has version 1.9.1 on the stock image?

We are using jira ondemand.

Thanks

You don't need to create a custom image. Add the following snippet as your instance startup script (in your image configuration):

antVersion=1.9.1
curl --silent "http://archive.apache.org/dist/ant/binaries/apache-ant-$antVersion-bin.tar.bz2" | bzip2 -d | tar xC /opt -f -
ln -fs /opt/apache-ant-$antVersion /opt/ant-1.9
rm -rf /opt/apache-ant-*/docs

Thanks that worked.
