Subject using telnet in ant 1.6.1
Date Tue, 04 May 2004 21:28:35 GMT
I have been using ant 1.5.4 and telnet task just fine in MS Windows. I
upgraded to ANT 1.6.1 and my telnet task fails:
C:\dev\build\remoteTarget.xml:207: Could not create task or type of typo
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 misspelt 'telnet'.
   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.
   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
I copied optional.jar and netComponents.jar to ANT_HOME/lib but result
did not change. The jars are old as ANT 1.5.4. Would that matter? Or
Should I declare the task too? 
Thanks for any insight you may offer,
