BotDetect Java CAPTCHA Ant Build Dependency

BotDetect Java Captcha dependency in an Apache ANT Build

Add target to application's Buildfile to get the BotDetect Java Captcha Library jar from repository:

<!-- Download dependence -->
<target name="get-deps" description="retrieve dependencies manually">
    <echo message="Getting dependencies..." />
    <mkdir dir="lib" />
    <get src="" dest="lib/botdetect-4.0.beta2.jar" usetimestamp="true" />
    <get src="" dest="lib/botdetect-servlet-4.0.beta2.jar" usetimestamp="true" />
    <get src="" dest="lib/botdetect-jsp20-4.0.beta2.jar" usetimestamp="true" />
    <get src="" dest="lib/botdetect-jsf20-4.0.beta2.jar" usetimestamp="true" />

In case your application uses JSF 1.2 you will need to add botdetect-jsf12 instead of botdetect-jsf20.

BotDetect Java Captcha Api is now ready to be used in project.

Reference the target 'get-deps' from previous step in a compile target:

<target name="compile" depends="init, get-deps" description="compile source code">
  <copydir src="${web.dir}" dest="${build.dir}" />
  <mkdir dir="${web.classes.dir}" />
  <javac destdir="${web.classes.dir}" source="${jdk.version}" target="${jdk.version}"
    debug="true" includeantruntime="false" classpathref="compile.path">
    <src path="${src.dir}" />
