Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-368) SFTP documentation implies that "userDirIsRoot" defaults to true (but it defaults to false)
Date Sat, 12 May 2012 09:43:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-368?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13273908#comment-13273908
] 

Andreas Persson commented on VFS-368:
-------------------------------------

The same is true for ftps. (But not for ftp, unless the patch in VFS-265 is accepted.)

(Note that the behavior was changed: before the patch in VFS-264 the default value for UserDirIsRoot
in sftp actually was false. I found that a bit strange, as VFS-264 was about ftps, not sftp.
I asked the author of that patch if the sftp change was intentional, and indeed it wasn't,
see http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/commons-dev/201101.mbox/%3c1DCE895F45843C42B615CA046BA82158142CA258DB@walle%3e.
No action was made  in spite of this, so VFS 2.0 shipped with UserDirIsRoot default true for
sftp and ftps, but false for ftp.)

>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Brendan Long
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: sftp
>
> On this documentation page:
> http://commons.apache.org/vfs/filesystems.html#SFTP
> It says:
>     SFTP
>     Provides access to the files on an SFTP server (that is, an SSH or SCP server).
>     URI Format
>     sftp://[ username[: password]@] hostname[: port][ absolute-path]
>     Examples
>         sftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/pub/downloads/somefile.tgz
> The default is actually that the path is relative from the user's home directory. This
can be changed by running:
>     SftpFileSystemConfigBuilder
>     .getInstance()
>     .setUserDirIsRoot(options, false);
> I suggest changing the documentation to say [ relative-path ] and adding a note about
absolute paths (but I'm not sure how to make it fit the style of this page).
