Subject [jira] [Updated] (VFS-199) Http/Https listChildren browse support
Date Mon, 21 Jan 2013 09:20:12 GMT


Ibrahim Hasbini updated VFS-199:

    Attachment: VFS-199_updated.patch


I attached an updated patch (VFS-199_updated.patch) generated against the HEAD (revision 1436223)
of the VFS trunk.

I made the following modifications:

- Used a HashSet to collect the child urls, in order to avoid duplicates.
- Added a check to handle the case where the links in the returned html index are absolute.
The older patch assumes the links are always relative.
- moved the version of the jsoup dependency to the dependency management section of the parent

> 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.
