Subject [jira] [Commented] (IO-270) "IllegalArgumentException: Negative time" copying to Windows share
Date Thu, 05 May 2011 01:52:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-270?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13029097#comment-13029097
] 

Sebb commented on IO-270:
-------------------------

The line numbers do not agree with IO 2.0.1 - are you sure that is the version being used?

Assuming that the version is actually 1.4 (which does agree) the line at 686 is:

bq. destFile.setLastModified(srcFile.lastModified());

which means that the input file has a lastModified date which is negative.

Now according to the java.io.File Javadoc, that is not possible - looks as if there may be
a JVM bug here.

Is it possible to run a simple Java program to test the value of lastModified() on the file
that fails?

> A customer reported the following exception to us:
> {noformat}java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Negative time
>       at java.io.File.setLastModified(File.java:1258)
>       at org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.doCopyFile(FileUtils.java:686)
>       at org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.copyFile(FileUtils.java:653)
>       at org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.copyFile(FileUtils.java:607)
>       at <in house code>{noformat}
> Part of the problem is the exception itself but also our code was expecting FileUtils
to throw IOException instead of ISE.
