Failed to create task or type sshexec...
Sun Jan 05, 2014 10:18 PM

My Ant script is throwing the following error while executing   sshexec ant command.

ant-jsch.jar and jsch-0.1.50.jar are present under folder /usr/share/ant/lib

Error details:


Problem: failed to create task or type sshexec

Cause: the class org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.ssh.SSHExec was not found.

        This looks like one of Ant's optional components.

Action: Check that the appropriate optional JAR exists in



        -a directory added on the command line with the -lib argument


Do not panic, this is a common problem.

The commonest cause is a missing JAR.


This is not a bug; it is a configuration problem
