Is there an ant version for AIX?

    Ant is plain Java. Runs on anything with a JVM. – Mat Mar 1 '16 at 6:33

    I think your question more or less is duplicating this topic: serverfault.com/questions/488490/… – Svetlin Tonchev Mar 1 '16 at 10:33

The answer is now YES - I just packaged it :)

The basic install instructions will be to download the installp file via the wiki page at http://www.aixtools.net/index.php/ant, then use smitty install to install the file

(via the command line - assuming downloaded to $HOME/tmp use)

# inutoc $HOME/tmp
# installp -d $HOME/tmp aixtools.apache.ant.rte


Quoting Ant's download page:

Ant is distributed as zip, tar.gz and tar.bz2 archives - the contents are the same. Please note that the tar.* archives contain file names longer than 100 characters and have been created using GNU tar extensions. Thus they must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar.

For more Stack Exchange guidance, see Svetlin's link: https://serverfault.com/a/515602 which essentially points you to Ant's installation document.

For future reference and/or posterity, here are some additional sites that provide software for AIX:
