Dear Brothers and sisters,I am new to ant.

i have unzipped the ant into D:\Room_Mates\riyaz\Installd\ant\apache-ant-1.6.5.

set the ANT_HOME = D:\Room_Mates\riyaz\Installd\ant;
set the JAVA_HOME = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_09;
set the path = %JAVA_HOME%\bin;%HSQLDB_HOME%\bin;%ANT_HOME%\bin;
%ANT_HOME%\apache-ant-1.6.5\lib\ant-launcher;

You missed "apache-ant-1.6.5" in ANT_HOME. Also remove the semi-colon from the end of ant home and java home

where you installed it =
D:\Room_Mates\riyaz\Installd\ant\apache-ant-1.6.5.

you set the ANT_HOME =
D:\Room_Mates\riyaz\Installd\ant;
