Deploy JAR file to UNIX Server

I am using a build.xml file to create a JAR file. I also need the build.xml ANT script to transfer the JAR file to a UNIX server where it will be deployed on WebLogic 8.1.

Is there a good way to transfer the file to the UNIX server besides a telnet session? If only it could be as easy as mapping to a Windows server.

You can use the optional ant FTP task.

Note that this task requires you to download a couple of additional jars if you don't already have them. The easiest way to use those is to drop them into your ant_home/lib directory along with the ant jars.

See the Library Dependencies section of the Installing ant page.

To use the FTP task, you need jakarta-oro , and commons-net jars.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
