FTP3.2 plugin question [message #636] Wed, 16 August 2006 17:00 Go to next message

First of all, I would like to say that I hope this is the right place to ask
this question. I've searched in both the 'target management' and 'webtools'
newsgroups as well as the web for an answer to this. As a matter of fact, I
gave the eSFTP plugin a try prior to trying out the FTP plugin but I wasn't
satisfied with it.

I have installed the WebDAV and FTP 3.2 plugins onto eclipse 3.2 and got it
to work. My only issue here is that in order to upload(export) the files
I've been working on, I have to go through the entire export process
a.. On the main project node in the Navigator view, choose menu: Export...
a.. Select 'FTP' protocol and press Next.
a.. Choose a new folder to be exported and press Next.
a.. Choose the FTP target site
a.. press on Next

Otherwise, I do not see any way to upload a file. Is it at all possible to
quickly upload a file after the FTP target has been defined as well as setup
for the project?

If this is not possible, are there other 3rd party tools that I can use
(perhaps purchase) to do this? Thank you all very much for your time.

Hello Gonzalo,

The FTP/WebDAV component that you've been trying, was originally written
by the Eclipse Platform/Team group - but it's not being
actively maintained any more. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to
your question myself; best I can do is point you to the
platform-team-dev mailing list, there should be the people who have
originally developed FTP/WebDAV.

The other answer is, that in our project (Target Management) an
alternative solution for FTP is being developed. Our solution is
more like a traditional FTP client where you can work on the
remote site almost as if it were local. You can upload / download
by copy & paste actions.

The bad news on our side is, that we've been waiting since May for
Eclipse Legal IP / Copyright Review to complete on an FTP library
that we want to use (Jakarta commons net). While we dont have that
library, our FTP client is the one from Sun, which is rather unreliable
(but probably not much worse than the FTP/WebDAV one, which is also
from Sun I believe).

Anyways, it would be great if you'd want to try out our solution,
it's the "Remote System Explorer" and Milestone 4 was just completed
today:
http://download.eclipse.org/dsdp/tm/downloads/drops/S-1.0M4- 200608182355/index.php

Please have a look at the build notes, there's a link to a Tutorial.
We'd appreciate any feedback that you'd want to give.

Cheers,
