I tried to create an account to ask question. But after registeration, the account does not work. So I have to send you the mail directly.
We have a very old java FTP upload component which using a very old version of edtFTPj library. Probably v1.3. This version of edtFTPj supports the transfer type EBCDIC. Please refer to the class com.enterprisedt.net.ftp.FTPTransferType.
Decompile the *.class file:
public class FTPTransferType
private static String cvsId = "$Id: FTPTransferType.java,v 1.3 2001/10/09 20:54:08 bruceb Exp $";
public static FTPTransferType ASCII = new FTPTransferType();
public static FTPTransferType BINARY = new FTPTransferType();
public static FTPTransferType EBCDIC = new FTPTransferType();
public static FTPTransferType STRUCTRECORD = new FTPTransferType();
public static FTPTransferType NOSTRUC = new FTPTransferType();
static String ASCII_CHAR = "A";
static String BINARY_CHAR = "I";
static String EBCDIC_CHAR = "E";
static String STRUCTRECORD_CHAR = "R";
Now we are trying to refacoring our component, but the latest edtFTPj does not support EDBDIC. I find a potential solution in the FAQ: http://enterprisedt.com/questions/index.php/211/encoding-problem-probably-with-ebcdic?show=211#q211
Could you please advise:
1. When the EBCDIC was not supported? If possiable, could you advise the reason that it was not supported any more?
2. Does the link I found could be considered as the solution to upload file with EBCDIC? If not, could you advise?
