Subject [jira] Commented: (CAMEL-3309) Stepwise change of directory unfit for production (ftp/ftps/sftp)
Date Fri, 12 Nov 2010 10:25:25 GMT


Claus Ibsen commented on CAMEL-3309:

Bengt the community thanks you for reporting this issue and helping with finding the solution.
And sorry for causing you trouble with  the Camel 2.5 changes. However looks like we have
a solution which supports a broader range of end users.

> In Camel 2.5, the logic for changing directory for ftp/ftps/sftp has changed in order
to fix the problems discussed in the following thread:
> In Camel 2.5 changing of the remote directory is now done in a stepwise manner. This
is a strategy not fit for production since it assumes that the logged in ftp/ftps/sftp user
has access to all intermediate directories all the way down to its home directory. This is
rarely the case.
> Also, when testing ftp/sftp on Serv-U, a Windows based ftp/ftps/sftp server, it turns
out that it reports the current directory in a "Windows way", e g /C:/temp/servu/user/sample/file2sftp.
The topmost folder is not "/" but "/C:". This also breaks the new stepwise way of changing
directory since it always tries to change to "/" if an absolute path is used.
> I propose to introduce a configuration property to enable/disable stepwise changing of
directories where disabling it should be the default. I will upload a patch shortly.
