      Description

      The current distribution does not work on Z/OS without modification.
      The issue stems from the XML parser.
      The plexus MXParser (org.codehaus.plexus.util.xml.pull.MXParser) does not handle xml encoding and different character sets properly.
      Any xml files that are sent to the MXParser MUST be in the same character set as the operating system default.

      Three files in the distribution META-INF/plexus/components.xml, org/apache/maven/project/pom-4.0.0.xml and org/codehaus/plexus/plexus-bootstrap.xml must be converted to EBCDIC in order for the ant tasks to function.
      Also any poms must be in EBCDIC regardless of the xml encoding.

          Aside from the issues stated above, at least using a local repository, the ant tasks seem to function just fine on Z/OS.

          Remote repositories do not work.

          The poms are in download as UTF-8 which as stated in the description can not be parsed by the plexus MXParser.

          pom reading is being worked on with MNG-2254.
          For META-INF/plexus/components.xml and org/codehaus/plexus/plexus-bootstrap.xml, I have a SNAPSHOT which should fix it. But I don't have access to a machine under Z/OS...
          Are you able to test a SNAPSHOT if I prepare one for you?

          Herve,
          I do have access to a Z/OS box so I could test the snapshot for you.

          Jeff,

          can you test http://codehaus.org/~hboutemy/maven-ant-tasks-2.0.7-SNAPSHOT.jar and report if I omitted something?

          I found a bug with EBCDIC support, the previous tasks should not work...
          please try http://codehaus.org/~hboutemy/maven-ant-tasks-2.0.8-SNAPSHOT.jar instead

          here is a patch to support encoding in settings.xml

          for encoding in other internal XML files in plexus-container, the work is in PLX-343

          MANTTASKS-79 concerns pom.xml and settings.xml only, not internal XML files which are needed for the tasks to work on Z/OS
