Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-215) FileUtils copy methods swallow date modification failures
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2010 23:39:40 GMT


Sebb commented on IO-215:

OK, I wondered about maintaining a count. 
Arguably more useful than the details of the first failed file, but would be nice to have
the total count as well.

But that can be tweaked later if necessary without changing the API.

> FileUtils.doCopyDirectory(..) and .FileUtils.doCopyFile(..) both call the setLastModified()
method, but fail to check if it succeeded or not.
> Surely if the caller has asked for the date to be preserved, failure to do so should
be reported somehow?
