Subject recursive deletion using ftp task
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2002 03:33:33 GMT


I am trying to use the ftp task to recursive delete files and folder on a ftp
server.  I am using a fileset to specify the files to be deleted.  However, if
wildcard is used to specifiy recursive folders in the include of the fileset,
the task will not work.

The task works fine deleting multiple files in a single directory, but not
recursively into the sub-directories.

I also tried using multiple includes for the fileset.  This turns out that only
the last include in the list will be executed.

Moreover, I cannot find a way to remove a directory on the server using the ftp
task.  Are there anyway to do this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Kevin Wong.
