Subject Re: ftp task in ANT
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2002 08:24:43 GMT
ok. here is what I have so far, attached as a patch, and an example of it
running. I think the problem and fix list is adequate for most problems.

Any changes before it gets committed? I might want to quote the element name
in the misspelled bullet item. And I dont know whether to use mispelt or
misspelled; I think the former is the UK spelling,the latter the US edition,
but I could be wrong


C:\scratch\maudit.xml:4: Could not create task or type of type: maudit.

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 misspelled maudit.
   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.
 - The task is not an ant core or optional task
   and needs to be declared using <taskdef>.
   Fix: declare the task.
 - The task is an ant optional task and optional.jar is absent
   Fix: look for optional.jar in ANT_HOME/lib, download if needed
 - The task was not built into optional.jar as dependent
   libraries were not found at build time.
   Fix: look in the JAR to verify, then rebuild with the needed
   libraries, or download a release version from
 - The build file was written for a later version of Ant
   Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant

Please do not 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.
