Hello... 2 quick comments about the FTPClient class:

1. It is a shame that there is no support for MGET and MPUT at the FTPClient 
class level.

2. There is a comment in the Javadoc for the listNames(String pathname) method 
that states:
"Obtain a list of filenames in a directory (or just the name of a given file, 
which is not particularly useful)." 
I just wanted to mention that I am using this method by providing a specific 
filename as the pathname as a way to determine the existance of a specific file 
on the FTP server. Unless there is some other way of doing this that I do not 
know about, this is a very useful purpose for this method. It seems like the 
Javadoc is trivializing this use and I wanted to ensure that you understood 
that providing a filename and checking if the resulting names array has a 
length of 1 is a great way to determine file existance on the ftp server.

I will say that the FTPClient works great. It is perfectly compatible with the 
3 ftp servers I have tested it with thus far. Thanks!!!
