How do you add Ant Libraries to Build

I am writing a Build script that uses the <FTP> tag. This requires the org.apache.commons.net.ftp.FTPClientConfig from the Apache Net Commons library. How do I add the library to the build project and use it without adding it to the Build Engine?

Thanks!

You could try adding it with a -lib argument in the Ant Arguments field on
the Ant page in the build definition.

From the ant -help:

-lib <path> specifies a path to search for jars and classes

adding -lib and the path to the jar directory to the ANT arguments does not work. Adding the Jars to the BuildToolkit directory does not work either.

My advice would be to create a standalone ant script that uses this FTP
task. Invoke ant on it and see if it works. If you can get it working, then
proceed to make it work in a build invoked by RTC.

RTC is doing nothing special other than invoking the ant process and passing
the arguments.
