Hi everybody.

I need to connect with Mainframe FTP to edit JCL and Cobol Files.
To connect with Mainframe using FTP it's necessary not just the host but specify the subdirectory where the files are.

I'm trying to use the RSE plugin to to this, but I wasn't able to find an option where I could setup the target subdirectory, and I'd like to know if its possible to define the subdirectory of the target connection.

Thanks a lot.

You would typically first make a default connection (which gives access to files in the default FTP directory under the "My Home" filter.

Then on the connection/files subsystem, you right-click > New > Filter .

This allows you to define an absolute path on the remote, and give that path a name for easily accessing files in that path and below. You can define multiple such filters if you want.

Hi Martin!

I tried to create a filter based on the directory path, but the response from the Mainframe was "No datasets found".

Thanks.

Hi Martin,

I read another thread related to this topic (http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/487603/), and now I'm suspecting the error occurred because the directory I'm tring to access is virtual folder, defined by the mainframe FTP support application.
This folder is mapped to a partitionated file (special file type of mainframe) where there are children objects. Every children object of the partitioned file is considered as a file by the mainframe FTP support application.

As I read in the related topic maybe the error occur becase the plugin is using the list command, and not using the CD command to reach the virtual folder.

I'd like to know if there is a solution to enable support to browse virtual folders.

Thanks.

I found a related bug, but it seems it was not yet corrected.
