Your variable $ANT_HOME isn't set. If it is an environment variable, don't forget to export it.

Thanks for the reply!
$ANT_HOME is set properly to /usr/apache.ant_1.7.1
It is executing myBuild.xml file..
But giving the following error :

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/tools/ant/launch/Launcher

I have also added $ANT_HOME/bin to the $PATH VARIABLE.

Can you please help me?

Did you set $JAVA_HOME ?
Installing Apache Ant
# 5  
Yes $JAVA_HOME is already set to

And also included in the $PATH with bin appended after the $JAVA_HOME.
# 6  
And did you export those variables?
