Ant build step does not work on AIX slave



    • Bug
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Major
    • ant-plugin
    • Jenkins version: 1.539
      Slave: AIX 5.3, JRE 1.6.0 IBM


      I'm trying to execute an Ant build script on a AIX slave where I don't have administrator rights. JAVA_HOME and ANT_HOME are not set by default, so I had to set them (and add them to PATH) in the node configuration.
      I deliberately did not configure an Ant installation, neither on the master nor on the slave.

      This is the stacktrace that I'm seeing:

      [aixtest] $ ant -version
      FATAL: command execution failed.Maybe you need to configure the job to choose one of your Ant installations?
      java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "ant" (in directory "/home/xxx/jenkins/workspace/aixtest"): error=2, A file or directory in the path name does not exist.

      Oddly enough, if I add an "Execute shell command" build step right before the Ant build step with the command "ant -version" it works:

      [aixtest] $ /bin/sh -xe /tmp/hudson5535938035142068913.sh
      + ant -version
      Apache Ant(TM) version 1.9.2 compiled on July 8 2013

      I debugged both the shell command and the ant execution but could not find any obvious difference. Both are calling something like:


      In both cases the environment variables seem to be set correctly.
