Update: 6 April 2012 This stopped working again. Adding
~/.ant/lib resolved the problem.
My installed version of ant (I presume from Developer Tools) doesn't support the ftp task:
$ which ant /usr/bin/ant $ ant -version Apache Ant version 1.7.0 compiled on August 25 2008 $ ant -diagnostics | grep ftp.*Available ftp : Not Available (the implementation class is not present) $
The manual says To use the FTP task, you need
jakarta-oro 2.0.8 or later, and
Sounds simple—just find the right
.jar files and put them in
jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar is easy to find.
commons-net-2.0.jar is also easy to find, as is
commons-net-ftp-2.0.jar —but they don't work. For example:
$ ls ~/.ant/lib commons-net-2.0.jar jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar $ /usr/bin/ant -diagnostics | grep ftp.*Avail ftp : Not Available (the implementation class is not present) $
ant-commons-net-1.7.1.jar does work with Ant version 1.7.0 — and you can find it if you look.
But there is an easier way...
Update to Ant version 1.7.1 (I did this from MacPorts with Porticus; Fink also has this version):
$ which ant /opt/local/bin/ant $ ant -version Apache Ant version 1.7.1 compiled on June 27 2008 $ant -diagnostics | grep ftp.*Available $ ls ~/.ant/lib $
The MacPorts installation includes the requisite java archives. (I haven't tested the Fink install.)
