Microsoft Azure has developed reasonable hosting support for Java, yet interestingly there is no Gradle plugin that deploys to FTP and FTPS. I found this very surprising, so I thought I should post it here.
Please note that FTP/FTPS is fundamentally different from SFTP, and therefor Hidetake Iwata’s amazing plugin does not support it. I raised this issue on that repo requesting the protocol be supported.
However, it seems to make some sense to have a separate “FTP/FTPS” plugin anyway, and then on top of such a plugin, an even more specific “Azure deploy” plugin might also make sense.
