Subject Re: Multipart download in FTPClient

Are you referring to Commons NET FTPClient?

If so, that has methods for writing the data to an output stream as it arrives:,

This does not take more memory for larger files.

See also the example app:


You can run the FTPClientExample as indicated above:

java -jar [path]/commons-net-examples-3.5 FTPClientExample -b user
pass host remote local
java -jar [path]/commons-net-examples-3.5 FTPClientExample -b -A host
remote local
for anonymous login

The -b is binary mode, which is almost certainly needed for large
files, which are unlikely to be text.
