RE: still trying to get ant, jakarta commons, ftp task, on z/OS to play (Upgrade to J1.4 does not solve problem)
another help plea for zOS (IBM mainframe) platform.
i am trying to get the ant ftp task, on zOS, to ftp. previous emails from
helpful listserv members recommended i upgrade to ant 1.6.5, java 1.4.
doing so i've "progressed" abit further. i now see a hang when trying to
initiate ftp client (and no longer see garbage characeters spit out on
to isolate the problem (between ant and commons-net) i wrote the java app,
below. this app stalls on zOS and eventually terminates with excpetion. on
Windows the app connects successfully. furthermore, there is no problem
using the IBM ftp client interactively. any clues appreciated. apologies
(in advance) for the poor java. all i can say is, "i'm learning :)".
