edtFTPj/Free Revision History

The edtFTPj change log is shown below. Only the most recent releases are available.

Version Description
Version 2.4.0
(24 December 2012)
  • Improved performance of binary input streams. Implement skip(), mark() and reset() for FTPInputStream.
  • Catch tryLock() exceptions and ignore them. Add flag to avoid using tryLock().
  • Added resumeNextDownload(long) to FTPClient so that partial downloads can be done.
Version 2.3.0
(26 August 2011)
  • Added support for using ACCT in FileTransferClient.
  • FTPFile.getPath() should not include the filename, only the directory, for all protocols. This includes FTPFile objects returned from dirDetails() and fileDetails().
  • Fixed bug in MLST parser.
  • If MLST not supported fileDetails() now falls back to SIZE and MDTM.
  • Return an empty array of features if FEAT returns no features (but is implemented by the server). Tweak array so only actual features are returned.
Version 2.2.2
(7 February 2011)
  • Fixed bug re reading multi-line replies.
Version 2.2.1
(17 January 2011)
  • Fixed resume bug(introduced in 2.2.0).
  • Trim spaces in front of FTP reply codes.
  • Added OS/400 directory listing parser.
Version 2.2.0
(4 January 2011)
  • Permit 232 code to be returned from USER command.
  • Add ability to abort listings when using a callback.
  • Added RollingFileAppender.
  • Added a system property to add a prefix to all edtFTPj loggers (for use with log4j).
  • Tweaks to UnixFileParser for some unusual formats.
  • Ensure that "." and ".." don't appear in listings that use wildcards.
Version 2.1.0
(28 April 2010)
  • Add callback allowing each entry returned from dirDetails and listDirectory to be processed one by one, without creating a list of all entries. Useful for very large listings where memory could be a problem.
  • Fixed resume download bug where if resume() is called twice, firstly on an existing file, and then when there is no local file, the second download also resumes.
  • Mask argument to ACCT in logging.
Version 2.0.5
(19 October 2009)
  • Fix end of line terminator bug in FTPInputStream. If Unix EOL terminators were read, they were stripped, which is incorrect.
  • Made exists() method more reliable for FTP/FTPS.
  • Note - now supports Java 1.4 and above.
  • Fixed problem whereby FTP server errors such as 452 are accepted in non-strict reply checking mode.
  • Add ability to intercept and modify the server response to the PASV command (so that a different host or port number can be substituted).
  • Now throws FTPTransferCancelledException when uploads are cancelled.
  • Minor file parsing bug fixes.
Version 2.0.4
(13 February 2009)
  • Fix bug where control socket isn't closed if connect succeeds but initial commands fail.
  • Refactored directory listing parsing. Fix for Korean months in UnixFileParser.
  • FTPException.toString() now includes the reply code if it exists.
  • Add FTPFile.isFile().
  • Fix bug in FTPInputStream.read().
  • Fix bug in Logger where edtftp.log.level property is not set correctly.
  • Print out CodeSource in logging.
  • For resuming uploads, now send SIZE prior to establishing data socket.
  • Implement automatic retry for FTP transfers.
  • Fixed problem where server replies had embedded \r chars. This meant it was wrongly thought that the reply was complete, when in fact more was to come (resulting in out of order replies further along).
Version 2.0.3
(6 June 2008)
  • Fixed bug where any strings added to the FileNotFoundStrings, DirectoryEmptyStrings and TransferCompleteStrings instances obtained via getAdvancedFTPSettings().setFileNotFoundMessages() etc were not applied.
  • In active mode, now cycles through available ports if socket creation fails for a transfer.
  • "Unexpected null reply" error message changed to a more informative message.
Version 2.0.2
(31 March 2008)
  • Added FTPConnectionClosedException, thrown when a 421 reply is received.
Version 2.0.1
(9 January 2008)
  • Fixed bug where the last modified date was always null for the Windows parser.
  • executeCommand() now returns the entire server string, including any FTP reply codes.
  • Fix documentation error re directory listings.
Version 2.0.0
(20 December 2007)
  • Major enhancements. Release of FileTransferClient, a new, easy-to-use interface that includes the functionality of FTPClient but adds FTP streams.
  • New updated Developers Guide, together with extensive new examples.
  • Add setListenOnAllInterfaces(boolean) flag to stop active mode listening on all interfaces (all interfaces is the default).
Version 1.5.6
(15 October, 2007)
  • In dirDetails() now English is always tried first for date parsing locale, followed by the default locale. Other locales can also be specified. Also, date parsing exceptions are no longer propagated - the relevant field is now set to null.
  • Ignore FTPException from size() if resume is being tried for an upload (which occurs if the file does not exist).
  • Fix in parsing code for Connect:Enterprise UNIX.
  • Added accessors for message fragment collections used in parsing server messages for FTP/S.
Version 1.5.5
(30 May, 2007)

  • Improved connected() method for JRE 1.4+.
  • Fix ASCII mode bugs whereby some line terminators are incorrectly handled.
  • ASCII mode can now read Unix or Windows text files on any platform.
  • Change dirDetails() to cope with SYST unsupported.
  • Download operations append the remote filename to the local path if the local path is a directory.
  • Fixed autodetect transfer mode bug where actual mode was not being changed on the FTP server.
  • FTPTransferCancelledException now thrown for transfers if the transfer is cancelled.
  • Added getVMSParser() to FTPFileFactory, permitting the VMSParser to be directly configured (and added is/setVersionInName() and get/setBlockSize() to VMSFileParser). Directory names returned now have ".DIR" trimmed off them.
Version 1.5.4
(16 January, 2007)
  • Added support for STOU, i.e. all put() methods now permit a null parameter for the remote filename - the FTP server generates a unique name that is returned.

  • Added exists() method to FTPClientInterface and FTPClient.
  • Fixed bug in handling FTP error messages when data connection has been terminated.
