Subject [jira] Commented: (NET-253) How to get time values (hour, min, sec) using FileFTP.getTimestamp() method
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2009 22:15:59 GMT


Sebb commented on NET-253:

Unix systems often use two different date formats, one with just the date (including the year)
and the other with the time. For files that are more than a year old - as is the case in your
example - no times are displayed.

Try doing a "dir" of a more recent file and see what that gives.

Unless the FTP server returns the infomation, there's nothing that NET can do.

> Hello,
> 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
> 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>

> PASS **********

> 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
> Thank you,
