Bernd Eckenfels updated NET-550:
--------------------------------

    Attachment: net-buffercopy-ext.patch

Version using 8k, avoiding double-buffering and fixing javadocs.

> While experimenting with FTPClient, I discovered that if I don't call setBufferSize(),
the default value is zero.  This results in retrieveFile() calling the version of InputStream.read()
with no parameters, reading one byte at a time.  For comparison, the downloading a CD ISO
image of about ~648MB took 18m10s with the default settings.  In contrast, calling setBufferSize(8192)
took only 7.9s, an improvement of ~137x.
> Here is some sample code:
> {code:java}
> FTPClient ftp = new FTPClient();
> // ftp.setBufferSize(8192);
> ftp.setControlKeepAliveTimeout(300);
> ftp.setCopyStreamListener(new CopyStreamListener() {
>     @Override
>     public void bytesTransferred(long totalBytesTransferred, int bytesTransferred, long
streamSize) {
>         System.out.println("totalBytesTransferred: " + totalBytesTransferred
>             + ", bytesTransferred: " + bytesTransferred + ", streamSize: " + streamSize);
>     }
>     @Override public void bytesTransferred(CopyStreamEvent event) {}
> });
> ftp.connect(host);
> ftp.login(user, pass);
> ftp.retrieveFile(file, outputStream);
> {code}
> The log message from the stream listener printed lots messages "bytesTransferred: 1"
and totalBytesTransferred incremented by 1 each time.  This corresponds to the part of the
code which reads one byte at a time with {{int inputStream.read()}}.
