Subject [jira] Commented: (NET-255) how to find a file on FTP server by providing filename
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 22:31:59 GMT


Rory Winston commented on NET-255:

Hi Jignesh

Unfortunately its not possible at present to do this - recursive operations are not a mandated
feature in the FTP specs. 

You could do a recursive listing and filter the results for the filename you are looking for,
either by recursively searching all files with a 'directory' type, or by using the recursive
listing feature added in 2.0 (if the server supports it).

> Hello,
> I am using commons-net-2.0. After successful login on FTP server, is it possible to find
any file by providing file name? One thing is sure - This file is not present directly under
working directory.
> For example, the working directory on FTP server is "uw/abc". The file (hello.txt) path
is "uw/abc/unknown_folder/hello.txt". Here I know the file name itself but do not know under
which folder it is residing.
> Is there any method available under any class?
> Any help would be appreciated.
> Thank you
