Subject building optional tasks
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2003 20:53:40 GMT
I cannot be sure, but it seems that the procedure for building optional
tasks has migrated away from what it used to be.  I am trying to build
1.5.2 from the sources and unzipping the sources no longer creates a
lib/optional directory.  However, the lib/optional directory is still
needed even though I couldn't find anywhere within the documentation
that jars needed for optional tasks should be placed there in order to
be built into the optional.jar.

Finally, the Library Dependencies section of still states that for the ftp
and telnet tasks, netcomponents.jar must be downloaded from  However, the code of the ant tasks has
been changed to use
commons-net-1.0.0.jar for these tasks, which is now obtainable from  While I haven't
tried the manual's way, I doubt it will work since the ant code now uses
the new commons-net package names.
