Changes from Ant 1.10.5 TO Ant 1.10.6

Changes that could break older environments:

  • image task no longer works on Java 9+ because internal classes supporting Java Advanced Imaging are removed; imageio task (based on ImageIO and AWT) is provided as a replacement.
  • junitlauncher task has changed the class names and package names of the task as well as some of the supporting classes of that task. If any code depended on these class or package names, they will have to be updated to reference these newly named classes. This however, doesn't impact build scripts if their reference to junitlauncher task was merely through the use of the <junitlauncher> element.
  • ClearCase#runS has been augmented by a two arg-version and the one-arg version will no longer be called. This may affect subclasses that have overridden runS.

Fixed bugs:

  • fetch.xml must retrieve runtime rather than compile dependencies for mail task.
  • Fixes an issue in junitreport task, which used to throw a when saxon was used on Windows OS.
  • augment task now throws a BuildException (as noted in its manual) instead of a IllegalStateException in the absence of the "id" attribute.
  • would sometimes potentially use an incorrect compression level for a zip entry. This is now fixed.
  • sync task, in some cases on case insensitive file systems, would consider a file in a destination directory to be orphaned and would delete it. This task has now been fixed to infer the case sensitivity of the filesystem of the destination directory.
  • Fixes a potential java.util.ConcurrentModificationException in
  • cccheckout would ignore an error of the "ls checkout" command even if failOnError was set to false.
  • The isreachable condition could in some cases return true even if the actual address could potentially be unreachable. This is now fixed and the resolved address is actually checked for reachability.
  • Fixes an issue where scp transfer completion tracking wasn't being triggered for 100% completion.

Other changes:

  • generatekey task now supports SubjectAlternativeName during key generation.
  • the <modified> selector has a new built-in algorithm 'lastmodified' which computes a value based upon the lastmodified time of the file.
  • junitlauncher task now supports running tests in a forked JVM. More details available in the junitlauncher task manual.
  • signjar and verifyjar now support the -providerName, -providerClass and -providerArg command line options of keytool via new attributes.
  • signjar and verifyjar now supported nested <arg> elements for command line arguments that are not supported explicitly by the tasks via attributes.
  • added several attributes to <javadoc> that support modules.
  • properties used or set by BuildFileTask/BuildFileRule are documented in MagicTestNames. A new magic property, ant.test.basedir.ignore, is introduced for cases where Ant projects set up for test purposes must ignore basedir set externally by test harness.
  • a new CharSet type is provided for encoding or charset attributes in tasks that must deal with different character encodings in files, file names and other string resources.
  • is now multi-release jar aware. Starting Java 9, jar files can be packaged as multi-release jars, AntClassLoader now recognizes such multi-release jar files while loading resources at runtime in Java 9+ runtime environments.
  • Added jmod and link tasks, to support jmod and jlink tools of JDK 9+.
  • Jsch library dependency has now been upgraded to 0.1.55. Jsch is the library behind the sshexec and scp Ant tasks.
  • The "http" condition, now has a "readTimeout" attribute which can be used to control the amount of time to wait for the read to complete.
  • ftp task manual has been updated to mention that the remote listing of files honours the followsymlinks attribute.
