Subject [net] JDK 1.4+ Branch?
Date Sun, 29 Jan 2006 10:38:10 GMT
Hi Rory,

i have not sufficient experience in Jakarta Commons Net, to decide or
even to talk about of this, but i would said a few things about your

About dependency, i hope explain well in thread "JSSE and FTPS functionality".

> Proxy support

If when you said "Proxy support", you talk about the problem/bug
URLConnection, in JDK 1.3, that don't send user and password in
HttpURLConnection. i.e.

URL url = new URL("ftp://user:password@host:port/path");
URLConnection conexion = (url).openConnection();

InputStream in = clientHttp.getInputStream();

To the proxy it send ftp://host:port/path...

Because of this, its imposible to implement FtpHttpProxyClient... (its
only works with anonymous client).

If you talk of this, i have a solution, 2 classes that extends and
modifie 2 classes of JDK 1.3
(, and solve this problem...

If you want, i could colaborate...

And Steve,

I'm not negative :) only i would like use Jakarta Commons Net with my
JDK 1.3 proyects... If remember i don't ask colaborate, i only want 2
variables protected... :)

But, i don't mind colaborate with yours to make Jakarta Commons Net
better (and if possible JDK 1.3 compilant)

About this, i offer my time, to mantain FTPS under 1.3 or ever 1.4 :)

If you want...

Thank for your time.

The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is
for people with no decision-making ability
whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy
one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf,
decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who
don't know what the hell they're doing or who
on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not
just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining
sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.
