Subject [jira] Commented: (NET-187) TFTP Server for commons net
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 04:50:58 GMT


Dan Armbrust commented on NET-187:

Well, I asked Rory that exact question, and he thought it would be fine to add if it didn't
complicate things.

A TFTP server is a natural fit with the TFTP client - and this one is implemented entirely
on commons net - and there I haven't found any other reasonable open source java TFTP server
in any other project.  This isn't something like a Tomcat server.  Its here, it works, and
many people could use it.  It's simple, and self contained.  It doesn't bring in any other

Quite frankly, I think you need to keep it just so you can keep the JUnit tests that I included.
 Your TFTP client has been broken for years, because it was never properly tested after various
patches were applied.

With the new tests, and the server, you can at least be confident that the client doesn't
have any regression failures.

And I think that argument easily outweighs the the mission statement of only doing client
