Subject [jira] Commented: (NET-171) Improve
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2007 06:44:51 GMT


Arno Unkrig commented on NET-171:

Also, I'd strongly recommend that FTPFile declare an (abstract?) method

    public String getModificationStamp()

, which returns a short string which is guaranteed to remain the same as long as the file
is unmodified and is very probable to change if the file is modified. E.g. on a UNIX system,
the modification stamp could be modification time plus file size; on MVS, it could be modification
date plus modification level.

That would be a portable way to detect file changes on the FTP server.

> Hi there,
> the "MVSFTPEntryParser" who parses the output of an FTP LIST of an MVS FTP server, is
a sad view... it's totally broken. I developed a custom FTPEntryParser, which I can hook into
the FtpClient (thank you for the highly customizable design). I'd like to donate it to COMMONS
NET... who can I turn to?
