Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-345) Regression: FTP Provider does not support symbolic links correctly
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 09:26:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-345?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13274240#comment-13274240
] 

Andreas Persson commented on VFS-345:
-------------------------------------

I've investigated this a little bit further.

The structure that causes the bug for me is:

/dir1/dir2/dir3/file
/link -> /dir1/dir2

- then, the URL ftp://server/link/dir3 returns false from exists().

This is with a Solaris ftp server. On Apache FtpServer it works.

> A symlink to a directory returns false from exists(). getType() returns FileType.IMAGINARY.
