How to get time values (hour, min, sec) using FileFTP.getTimestamp() method

                 Key: NET-253
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 2.0
         Environment: Windows Vista Business, java version "1.6.0_11"
            Reporter: Jignesh Patel


I am using commons-net-2.0 in my application to access FTP server.

My aim is to get value of "last modified date/time" value for any file present on FTP Server.

The FTP Server resides at different location and I don't have direct access to it.

Beloew are some lines I can see when I connect to FTP Server using ftp client software.
220 <server-name> X2 WS_FTP Server 5.0.4 (2790816660)  
USER <userid>  
331 Password required  
PASS **********  
230 user logged in  
215 UNIX

Though it was listed "UNIX", I confirmed with my team that actual operating system on FTP
Server is Windows 2000.

To achieve my aim, I used getTimestamp() method of FileFTP class.

I have used default settings. Even I have not configured FTP server using FTPClientConfig.

The problem is - the Calendar object returned by invoking getTimestamp() method only contains
correct date (day, month & year) value. It does not contain time parts (hour, min, sec,
etc.). When I tried to print date in yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss format, it printed zeros for HH,
mm & ss parts (e.g. 2007-03-26 00:00:00). Any idea on how to get date value value along
with time parts? Am I missing some other configurations?

Note: If above option fails, I may plan to use getModificationTime() method of FTPClient class.

Thankk you,
