Hello, I extends class FTPControlSocket, but I got some problems. I can't override methods «readLine» and «writeCommand»  (I want add some log logic). I wrote my readLine2.

I see, this method use only in readReply, but for use my readLine2, I need override readReply and use super to call isValidFirstLineOfReply, isNumeric and new com.enterprisedt.net.ftp.FTPReply, but thats methods is private. Then I discovered that I could not override readReply also because of the visibility level.

In the end, for the sake of adding a couple of lines to readline, I had to pull out a lot of code. Is it possible to soften the visibility level on protected?


At the end I overrided sendCommand:


public com.enterprisedt.net.ftp.FTPReply sendCommand(String command) throws java.io.IOException, com.enterprisedt.net.ftp.FTPException {

if (log.isTraceEnabled() && trace_socket) {

log.trace("FTP WRITE: {}", command);


com.enterprisedt.net.ftp.FTPReply reply = super.sendCommand(command);

if (log.isTraceEnabled() && trace_socket) {

log.trace("FTP READ: {}", reply.getRawReply());


// and read the result

return reply;


So my problem has been resolved, however other users may have problems if they need to change the behavior of socket.
