Ant buildscript should not check for explicit Ant version numbers
Currently, the ant buildscript checks if the version of Ant that is being used is either 1.6 or 1.7. This causes a problem for people using newer versions. The buildscript should specify a minimum version of Ant, and assume that all future versions will be backwards compatible.
Updated build.xml similar as Guus did in (removed checks for many versions and only left minimal 1.7.1 version, also added a check for Java 1.9).
Wasn't resolved. Spark's build.xml still checks for 1.6, 1.7, 1.8 and now will check for 1.9 version of Ant.
