Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-6309) Sftp upload to subdirectory does not work if home directory is root ("/" or "\")
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2013 09:35:24 GMT


Bengt Rodehav commented on CAMEL-6309:

When looking closer at the FileUtil.compactPath() method I notice that it uses the normalizePath()
method which in turn does some weird checking of operating system to determine what separator
to use. This functionality checks the local operating system (where Camel is running) but
does not take into account what separator is being used on the remote server (the sftp server
in my case).

The FileUtil class is a generic class that does not know anything about any remote file system's
separator - and I don't think it should. Therefore, the FileUtil class can't really be used
in SftpOperations since it makes assumptions about separators that it really can't know anything

I haven't encountered any erors regarding this yet but it's easy to see that the logic is

> It is not possible to upload a file to a sub directory via sftp if the home directory
(the directory where you end up directly after login) is root ("/" or "\").
> The reason is that after having checked that the sub directory exists (and perhaps created
it), Camel tries to go back to the original directory which is "/". The SftpOperations.changeCurrentDirectory()
method calls the FileUtil.compactPath() method that incorrecly changes "/" to "//". The bug
thus resides in the FileUtil class which is part of camel-core.
> I think this bug may cause a number of other errors than the one I have enountered. E
g it cannot be possible to change direcotory to "/" at all. And, other protocols (like ftp/ftps)
might also be affected.
