I have a j2ee application running on a UNIX machine.
I need to write files to a windows file server share directory.

1) What would be the syntax for the URI or string to create a File\FileWriter\Writer?

so far I have tried:
new URI("file:///XXXFileServer/FolderA/FolderB/file.xml")
new URI("file:///XXXFileServer\\FolderA\\FolderB\\file.xml")
new FileWriter("\\\\XXXFileServer\\Folder\\FolderB\\file.xml")
new FileWriter("\\\\XXXFileServer/Folder/FolderB/file.xml")
which aren't correct.


new FileWriter("\\\\XXXFileServer\\Folder\\FolderB\\file.xml")
is correct if the code is running on an XP machine - but on the Unix it runs without throwing a FileNotFound error - but the file is not created.

2) So, my next question is - if the last line above is the correct syntax, and it is a user permissons error - is it possible to handle that in code or do I have to get a SysAdmin to open something up?

3) How can I handle folder names that have spaces in them?

Not sure...I know on our network, we are sharing a Windows directory with Samba, and that's mapped to a drive on the Linux side...maybe you could set up a mapped drive on the Unix box that points to a drive/directory on the Windows machine.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
