Having an issue and cannot seem to find the resolution. I was unable to find a method for copying a directory recursively to another ftp server or to another folder on the same server.
I have thrown together the following code to do so and it works fine if you create only the directories and not transfer any files.

If you transfer files the InputStream becomes NULL after the first file transfers and kills the program. I have had it check to make sure the FTP connection is still love and even know it is I always result in the same issue.

You can see from the following Output that the Stream always transfers one file successfully.
Under the output is the code I am using.

Any help would be appreciated or a better method, but it has to be able to be done using only Jakarta Libraries and java.io
