Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-407) Change lenientFutureDates to default to true
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 08:49:04 GMT


Marnix Kammer commented on NET-407:

The JavaDoc of FTPClientConfig#setLenientFutureDates has not been modified to reflect this
improvement - it still says that false is the default value of lenientFutureDates.

> NET-83 added an option to allow dates to be up to 1 day in the future, but this is not
the default.
> This means that FTP will assume the wrong year when listing recent files which are on
servers with a clock which is ahead of the client.
> This includes servers in a different timezone (unless the user specifies the server timezone)
- e.g. client in US listing files on a server in the UK.
> As far as I can tell, Unix servers use short dates for dates within about +/- 6 months
of the current date, so this should not cause any
> problems. But of course it is possible that some servers use short dates for past dates
> The behaviour of FTP parsing is likely to be improved overall by changing the default
to allow dates up to 1 day into the future.
