Subject [jira] Commented: (VFS-307) VFS issues a lot of FTP commands when listing a directory
Date Tue, 04 May 2010 11:32:58 GMT


Mario Ivankovits commented on VFS-307:

It seems there is no FTP spec which allows to escape/quote a path so that it works on each
and every ftp server.

So I landed at solution 2 similar to what the patch in VFS-123 proposed. It seems to work
with my ftp server.

> Hello Mario,
> We at JetBrains are implementing support for (S)FTP sync in our IDEs using Commons VFS.
When looking at the performance, we noticed that FTP provider is somewhat not perfect: see
my discussion with Ralph. 
> So the question is: why FtpClientWrapper changes the current directory to issue 'LIST'
command and restoring it back afterwards instead of issuing single 'LIST <relpath>'?

> Subversion says it was you who introduced this behavior far back in 2008. Hope you remember
those times and reason why you did this.
> Thanks a lot in advance,
