FTP a file from mainframe using JAVA

Postby RadAl3 » Wed Nov 14, 2012 2:41 pm

Hello All ,
Say I have a file file.txt on my mainframe host xxx.xxx.xxx.xx created by user QWERTY in the path TEST. I would like to ftp this file from mainframe to my unix machine. When I run the code
fsDataInputStream=ftpFileSystem.open(new Path ("ftp://QWERTY@xxx.xxx.xxx.xx'TEST/file.txt'") );


the error I get is "Path ftp://QWERTY@xxx.xxx.xxx.xx'TEST/file.txt' is a directory."

On giving
 fsDataInputStream = ftpFileSystem.open(new Path('TEST/file.txt'), 1000);


I get the error : File 'QWERTY.'/'TEST/file.txt does not exist. It appends the 'QWERTY.'/' on its own.

Any pointers on how to give this file path name ?

Have you tried specifying the complete path name in ftpFileSystem.open? Since you're connecting from another system, there's no environment information available such as the home directory for user QWERTY.

Thanks Robert . I did try that also but in vain . I finally found the way out. By not using FtpFileSystem , rather using other FTP api's ..

You can just use the FTP command.

Hello,

There is not much value added when you re-post the solution the poster has already posted . . .
Hope this helps,
