Dear All,

I need to make a *.tar file and through FTP i have to place it in another machine and using the command 'tar xvf *.tar' I have to untar it in my ftp folder.

This has to be done using an ant script.


Please let me know your ideas on this.


Regards,
Prabhu.

Have you tried looking for a tar task in the ANT documentation? Also look at the exec task.
