Hi all, actually i posted a question "how to autmoate FTP using Java". i knew the script in Unix to write to automate FTP and all but i didn't want to use Runtime.exec() to do it so i wondered if there are any available APIs for FTP in Java...so i posted this question on "Java other APIs" forum but now i am thinking of writing my own FTP Client in Java... can anybody suggest some steps i need to follow. i guess i 've to first understand FTP sematics etc which i'll do but if somebody has already written such client he/she can help me little so that i don't miss anything important. i would love to learn writing FTP client... regards, maulin
Look at sun.net.ftp.* And also look at this. It is really about SWING but provides an example of an FTP Client using the afore mentioned package.

hi all, thanks a lot for pointers you provided. i wrote my FTP Client in Java myself. Though I decompiled the sun.net.ftp.FtpClient it was good to learn how FTP works and why people say it is not a secure protocol. also, here is a link i found useful to understand FTP, FTP thanks, maulin
