Subject [jira] Commented: (CAMEL-3309) Stepwise change of directory unfit for production (ftp/ftps/sftp)
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2010 20:05:00 GMT


Bengt Rodehav commented on CAMEL-3309:

I've tested again using unaltered Camel 2.5 and now my recursive tests fail all the time.
I can't seem to reproduce the scenario where it worked (dropping the hierarchy directly into

I'd appreciate if you would do some tests against either Serv-U or Filezilla Claus...

> 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.
