Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-545) deleteFile always returns true
Date Sat, 29 Nov 2014 02:42:12 GMT


Sebb commented on NET-545:

The method completePendingCommand() should only be needed after a command that returns intermediate

It fetches the final reply.

deleteFile() already fetches the reply.

So either the server is returning additional data after the delete, or the app sent a previous
command whose reply had not been fetched.

If you wish to debug this further, add a PrintCommandListener (see examples for details).

> Ok, it seems that completePendingCommand(); fixes things. Still I think by default it
would be good to wait for this to finish. Plus the javadoc is EXTREMLY misleading (for deleteFile
it says "Returns:
> True if successfully completed, false if not.")
> The deleteFile always returns true, even if the file is not deleted.
> result = ftpClient.deleteFile(targetDir+"/"+fileName);
> --> the variable "result" is always true...
> My test code is following:
> boolean result = ftpClient.deleteFile(targetDir+"/"+fileName);
> System.out.println(result); //THIS IS ALWAYS true, even if the file is not deleted
> System.out.println(ftpClient.getReplyString()); // reply string for PREVIOUS operation
is shown
> int res = ftpClient.getReply(); // I have to call this to get the actual reply for delete
> System.out.println(res+ "aadfasd"); //550
> System.out.println(ftpClient.getReplyCode()); //550
> System.out.println(ftpClient.getReplyString());//550 Delete operation failed.
