Executing FTP ant task [message #631807] Fri, 08 October 2010 20:27 Go to next message

Hi,

I am trying to executing ANT's ftp task from commons net libraries. When I add jars in Eclipse and execute action, task executes. Running it from Hudson I get error
Could not create type ftp due to java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/net/ftp/FTPClientConfig

In my ant script I am using other libraries such as svn and am able to execute them by defining them using typedef ant call. Is there something extra I have to do to make it work outside of Eclipse? I tried to put jars into lib directory of where ANT is installed, but this does not work.

thanks,
Alex

Hello,
what was your solution, I am having the exact same problem. All threads point in putting
common-net-1.4.1.jar and
jakarta-oro-2.0.8.jar
into my "ant" plugin folder (C:\eclipse-3.7.2-win32\plugins\org.apache.ant_1.8.2.v20120109-1030 in my case)

But I still get the error after.

Any tip would really help.

Thanks!

My guess is that you will need to install some extra bundles into your headless bucky to make this run. Manually putting
stuff in under the plugins folder doesn't seem right. That's not what the IDE install is doing anyway.

Hello,
Thanks for your input, what do you mean by "bucky"?

I am using the headless build, I would need to open Eclipse to add those? Could you provide me some guidelines on how to do this?

Thanks!

The nickname for "Buckminster" ;-)

You can use the p2 director application to install things into any
Eclipse p2 based application (such as eh... "bucky" :-).

p2 director is available inside every Eclipse IDE, and is also available
as a separate command line tool. Google for it and you will find examples.

The headless bucky also has a command that allows you to install things
into it (with a slightly different command line syntax).

The "Bucky Book" available from Buckminster's download site has a
description of this as well.

It goes something like:

buckminster install «repository-url» «feature-id» [ «version» ]

Regards

I tried loading FTP libraries in my ant script and using action on top of that to perform the action during the build, something like this:

<taskdef name="ftp" classname="org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.net.FTP">
   <classpath>
     <pathelement location="${basedir}/build/tools/ant-commons-net.jar" />
     <pathelement location="${basedir}/build/tools/commons-net-2.0.jar" />
   </classpath>
</taskdef>
<target name="copy.qa.64">
  <ftp action="put" server="${server}" remotedir="${nightly64}" userid="${user}" password="${password}" verbose="true">
    <fileset>
      <include name="**/*.zip" />
      <include name="**/*.tar.gz" />
    </fileset>
   </ftp>
</target>

But that did not work - the jars files were never loaded. So I ended up adding the needed jars on the server to ${ANT_HOME}/lib directory and running ftp tasks like that.
