Hi ,

I am not sure whether anybody will care to answer this or not . But i really need help . Actually i have to make an ftp client using an applet to upload songs (bulk Upload)to a remote server . But the problem is i dont know how to start with if any body of you have any idea please share

A pseudo code will be of really great help. I tried google but came out with nothing worth while , so finally i have to turn to my ranch for help .


Thanks in advance

Regards

A while ago you posted a similar question but said that FTP was out of the question. Have your requirements changed?

yes Joe , it's changed . All i need to give them is a way to do bulk upload of songs , initially i thought http could be the solution but now i think ftp will be a better option , in terms of performance .

An upload of 100 songs at a time i dont think http is a good choice , what do you say

I get awfully good results by Googling "java ftp client library".

The way I understand things, HTTP has more overhead than FTP for a particular transaction, but the overhead is a fixed cost, so as the amount of data increases, the overhead as a percentage of data decreases. If your are moving a large amount of data in a single transaction I'd think the performance difference between the two would be negligable compared to the limitations of network throughput.
As Ernest points out, you can start with Google. You should also be aware of the security restrictions on applets.
