Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-199) Http/Https listChildren browse support
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 19:32:13 GMT


Dmytro Polivenok commented on VFS-199:

As I remember it is for handling case when you have links which points subfolders, for example:

in this case "folder1/subfolder1" will be trimmed to folder1, as we don't wont to include
"subfolder1" it as child of current directory (is is actually child of folder1 and it will
be returned there)

>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons VFS
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 1.1
>            Reporter: Andrew Franklin
>         Attachments: HttpGetList.txt, VFS-199.patch
> I think this was lodged at some time ago as VFS-79:
> Essentially the ability to browse http via the directory listing structure is reasonably
important for a number of use cases. 
> Mario noted in that previous bug that the parsing of the html isn't necessarily trivial
but I've submitted a patch that meets my requirements. The patch uses java regular expressions
which has the requirement of JVM > 1.4. Submitting in the hope that other users will find
it useful and maybe we'll be able to tidy it to the point where it can be integrated into
the vfs mainline.
