Set up lab machines for ant tasks

: Greg Newton
Minutes: 15

Java and ant are already installed on the machines (ant is part of oxygen) so we can adjust our workspace (via the .bashrc file) to make ant accessible on the CLI thusly:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64
export ANT_HOME=/usr/lib/oxygen/tools/ant
export PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/lib/oxygen/tools/ant/bin

If you want to use it right away run source ~/.bashrc and test with echo $ANT_HOME - it should echo /usr/lib/oxygen/tools/ant to the terminal prompt.
