Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-422) Allows to create other channels in SftpFileSystem
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2012 08:55:43 GMT


Benjamin Piwowarski commented on VFS-422:

Please find a patch for this new functionality (along with tests & copyright information)

A few comments on the patch:
- SftpFileSystem has a counter for externally opened channels (and a read access to it in
order to test the new functionality)
- I had to create a CommonsVFSChannelHelper in the com.jcraft.jsch package in order to get
access to package protected classes.
- I added a new test case so that both the creation and the counter are tested, so that the
function does not break in future versions.

> In the software I am writing, I need to execute commands when the filesystems "allows"
it, i.e. local or via ssh (i.e. sftp filesystem). 
> For a local filesystem, I can easily do this, but for Sftp, there is no way to get a
channel different than the SFTP on, so it would be great if other channels could be open.
> I could submit a patch that would:
> 1) Allows a call to session.openChannel(String type) [following getChannel()]
> 2) Overwrite isReleaseable to keep the filesystem open if some external channels are
