If you’re using Ant in your project, you can pull the Smooks binaries from the Maven repository using the “getsmooks-build.xml” Ant script:

  1. Make sure Ant is installed and your environment properly configured.
  2. Download getsmooks-build.xml to a local directory.
  3. Check the “smooks.version” script property and make sure it is set to the appropriate version (e.g. “1.7.1”).
  4. In the download directory, run “ant -f getsmooks-build.xml”.

The jar files will be dropped in the “**./smooks-**" folder, from where you can easily copy them to the appropriate location.
