Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-6219) FTPOperations changeCurrentDirectory uses local OS path separator, instead of FTP Server. File upload fails.
Date Thu, 11 Apr 2013 08:27:16 GMT


Mark Ingram commented on CAMEL-6219:

This is working for me against 2.10.5-SNAPSHOT, but not in the current 2.12-SNAPSHOT.
> FTPOperations changeCurrentDirectory uses local OS path separator, instead of FTP Server.
File upload fails.

>                 Key: CAMEL-6219
>                 URL:
>             Project: Camel
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: camel-ftp
>    Affects Versions: 2.10.4
>         Environment: Windows 7 with Oracle Java 6 JDK
> Remote vsftpd server on a Redhat based Linux distribution
>            Reporter: Mark Richards
> Summary:
> When uploading a single file to a vsftpd server from Windows using a Camel ftp:// endpoint
results in a 550 Failed to change directory error.
> Likely because the changeCurrentDirectory() command in FTPOperations doesn't provide
the server pathSeparator when compacting the url.
> Recreate:
>  - Start a vsftpd server (this likely affects other FTP servers) in a *nix environment.
>  - Set log4j properties to TRACE for Camel
>  - In Windows, run a simple Java class that includes the following
> ProducerTemplate pt = camelContext.createProducerTemplate();
> pt.sendBody("ftp://user@host/subfolder?fileName=test.file&password=12345678&stepwise=false&separator=UNIX");
> Trace:
> [2013.03.27 14:53:56] [main]  TRACE FtpOperations -  buildDirectory(test)
> [2013.03.27 14:53:56] [main]  TRACE FtpOperations -  changeCurrentDirectory(/var/ftp/pub)
> [2013.03.27 14:53:56] [main]  TRACE FtpOperations -  Changing directory: \var\ftp\pub
> [2013.03.27 14:53:56] [main]  WARN  RemoteFileProducer -  Writing file failed with: File
operation failed: 550 Failed to change directory.
>  Cannot change directory to: \var\ftp\pub. Code: 550
> As you can see the path swaps from /var/ftp/pub to \var\ftp\pub which is the wrong path
> Likely location:
> org.apache.camel.component.file.remote.FTPOperations:656
>     path = FileUtil.compactPath(path);
> org.apache.camel.util.FileUtil:209
>     return compactPath(path, File.separatorChar);
> File.separatorChar would return the LOCAL OS path, not the REMOTE OS path.
> This should use the value specified by separator=UNIX ("/" not "\").
> Possible fix would be to use the other compactPath(path,separator) method.
> Result:
> You cannot upload a single file using FTP in this fashion from a Windows client to a
vsftpd server on Linux. I'll have to switch to an alternative product for ftp until this is
resolved, but look forward to returning to using Camel for FTP uploads in the future :)
