Apache ant 1.7.0

As soon as build is done the main build file sets the classpath which
includes certain jars.
Know what I am trying to do is before even importing those jars i am trying
to check if they were present in the project folder or not.
If they were delete them and copy newer version from a FTP location and
then set the classpath. I hope this makes sense.

Can you suggest a work around.
