ANT FTP task Does not work

Z

Hi

Platform - windows XP
Env Variables -
name - ANT_HOME Value - C:\apache-ant-1.6.2
name - JAVA_HOME Value - C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_12
name - PATH Value - C:\Program Files\Java
\jdk1.5.0_12\lib;%ANT_HOME%\bin


I've downloaded and dropped the following jar files and copied them
into C:\apache-ant-1.6.2\lib folder.
I didn't do any command line compilation. I read elsewhere that I
don't have to do that.


jakarta-ant-1.4.1-optional.jar
common-net-1.4.1.jar
jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar
NetComponents.jar


I've followed all internet instructions to solve this problem, yet it
still doesn't work.
What do I do wrong ? I need step by step at this point from the gurus
here as I don't have much time
to debug.
Any help is appreciated.


My build.xml


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="ABC" basedir=".">
:
:


<target name="stoptest" depends="check_timestamp,init"
if="timestamp_set"
description="Run after the test">


<antcall target="stopserver"/>


<echo message="sleeping for 1 minutes to wait for the
servers to
stop"/>
<sleep minutes="1"/>
:
:
<antcall target="transferdata"/>
:
:
</target>


:
:
<target name="transferdata">
<echo message="transferring data to ${TEST_REPOSITORY \
$
{CURRENT_TIME}"/>
<echo message = "Inside ftp get ap1: path is $
{TEST_REPOSITORY}\$
{CURRENT_TIME}\rawdata\all_lg\${ap1}"/>
<echo message = "Inside ftp: remote dir is $
{ap_backup_dir}"/>
<echo message = "Inside ftp: server is ${ap1}"/>
<mkdir dir="${TEST_REPOSITORY}\${CURRENT_TIME}\rawdata
\all_lg\$
{ap1}"/>


<!-- Below ftp tag assumes a directory has already
been created --





<ftp
action="get"
server="{ap1}"
userid="${username}"
password="${password}"
remotedir="${ap_backup_dir}"
passive="no"
ignoreNoncriticalErrors="No"
skipFailedTransfers="false">
<fileset dir="${TEST_REPOSITORY}\$
{CURRENT_TIME}\rawdata\all_lg\$
{ap1}">
<include name="**/**"/>
</fileset>
</ftp>

Actual Output


$ ant -DTIME_STAMP=092520071020 stoptest

BUILD FAILED
C:\Documents and Settings\Zg\Desktop\Tp\in\pt\build.xml:93: The
following error occurred while executing this line:
C:\Documents and Settings\Zg\Desktop\Tp\in\pt\build.xml:354: Could
not
create task or type of type: ftp.


Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon.


This is common and has a number of causes; the usual
solutions are to read the manual pages then download and
install needed JAR files, or fix the build file:
- You have misspelt 'ftp'.
Fix: check your spelling.
- The task needs an external JAR file to execute
and this is not found at the right place in the classpath.
Fix: check the documentation for dependencies.
Fix: declare the task.
- The task is an Ant optional task and the JAR file and/or libraries
implementing the functionality were not found at the time you
yourself built your installation of Ant from the Ant sources.
Fix: Look in the ANT_HOME/lib for the 'ant-' JAR corresponding to
the
task and make sure it contains more than merely a META-INF/
MANIFEST.MF.
If all it contains is the manifest, then rebuild Ant with the
needed
libraries present in ${ant.home}/lib/optional/ , or
alternatively,
download a pre-built release version from apache.org
- The build file was written for a later version of Ant
Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant
- The task is not an Ant core or optional task
and needs to be declared using <taskdef>.
- You are attempting to use a task defined using
<presetdef> or <macrodef> but have spelt wrong or not
defined it at the point of use


Remember that for JAR files to be visible to Ant tasks implemented
in ANT_HOME/lib, the files must be in the same directory or on the
classpath


Please neither file bug reports on this problem, nor email the
Ant mailing lists, until all of these causes have been explored,
as this is not an Ant bug.

I see that 'not much time' has translated into a
multi-post. Please refrain from multi-posting in
future.
