Subject How to resolve a share path to a FileObject
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2012 10:01:36 GMT
Hello everybody!

I'm trying to use VFS2 to copy a file from a remote path to a local folder.

If I run

FileObject srcFile = fsManager.resolveFile(//+hostname+"/"+filename);

localFile.getName().getURI() returns something like file:////path<file:///\\path> and
srcFile.exists() returns false.

On the othe hand

FileObject srcFile =


fails with the following exception:

Badly formed URI "smb://user:***@hostname/filename"

Can anyone help me??

How can I resolve a share path to a FileObject??
