Subject [jira] [Created] (VFS-620) FileObject.moveTo(FileObject) API doesn't work well for a Linux FTP
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2016 20:01:20 GMT
stevezhuang created VFS-620:

             Summary: FileObject.moveTo(FileObject) API doesn't work well for a Linux FTP
                 Key: VFS-620
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.1
         Environment: ubuntu vsftpd
            Reporter: stevezhuang

FileObject.moveTo(FileObject) API doesn't work well for a Linux FTP, especially for setting
a user directory as its root directory case,
For example, for a ubuntu vsftpd, which is having "/home/user1" as its root directory, when
renaming "/test/test1.txt" to "/test1/test1.txt", it will throw an exception.
In this case, it should consider the workingDirectory(would be "/home/user1") together and
append it to the from/to path to make the API work.

Sample codes,
FileObject fileObject = null;
        FileObject toFileObject = null;
        try {
            StandardFileSystemManager fsManager = new StandardFileSystemManager();
            FileSystemOptions fsOpts = new FileSystemOptions();

            FtpFileSystemConfigBuilder.getInstance().setPassiveMode(fsOpts, true);
            FtpFileSystemConfigBuilder.getInstance().setUserDirIsRoot(fsOpts, true);
            UserAuthenticator auth = new StaticUserAuthenticator(null, "*", "*");
            DefaultFileSystemConfigBuilder.getInstance().setUserAuthenticator(fsOpts, auth);

            fileObject = fsManager.resolveFile("ftp://*/test/test.txt", fsOpts);
            System.out.println("File exists:" + fileObject.exists());

            toFileObject = fsManager.resolveFile("ftp://*/test1/test1.txt", fsOpts);
            System.out.println("File exists:" + toFileObject.exists());
            if (!toFileObject.exists()) {
        } catch (FileSystemException ex) {
        } finally {
            if (fileObject != null) {
                try {
                } catch (FileSystemException ex) {
            if (toFileObject != null) {
                try {
                } catch (FileSystemException ex) {

And the output,
File exists:true
File exists:false
org.apache.commons.vfs2.FileSystemException: Could not rename "ftp://*/test/test.txt" to "ftp://*/test1/test1.txt".
