I've taken a look at them... The Ear task only creates the .ear file, while
the Ftp task is not suitable to deploy on a Sun J2EE RE server.
My task does not create the .ear file, it simply deploys it on a remote J2EE
server as you would do with "deploytool -deploy myApp.ear myServerHost
Here's an example of how it works:

<j2eedeploy ejbJar="myApp.ear" j2eeHome="c:\j2sdkee1.3"
    dir="jars" hostname="" />

The Ear task is general while my task is Sun specific, so I don't think it
would be a good idea to merge them.
