Apache commons net 1.4.1 FTPClient reliability

Discussion in 'Java' started by Christopher Benson-Manica, Sep 20, 2007.

  1. The project I am working on happens to require a third-party FTP
    client component, and the Apache Commons FTPClient seems to be the
    only reasonable choice (at least the only reasonable *free* choice).
    However, http://www.sjhannah.com/blog/?p=21 and
    http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/orbit-dev/msg00465.html, among
    other sources, seem to suggest that FTPClient is prone to deadlocks
    when used in a multithreaded environment, which is the case for this
    project. My questions:

    1) In your experience, how reliable has the official 1.4.1 release
    been in a multithreaded environment - i.e., given "ordinary" usage,
    how often did deadlocks occur, if at all?

    2) The Eclipse reference above points to two patches to the 1.4.1
    source which are claimed to address the issues, but have yet to be
    incorporated into an official release (and may never be). Has anyone
    who found the unpatched 1.4.1 release to be unsuitable tried the
    patches? If so, what were the results?
