There is no size limit on a stream. If there is any size limit, it is determined by the operating system or the file system and no amount of magic at the application level will get around it (see here for a comparison of file system capabilities). Using NIO will not get around any limitation, if one exists. The stream-style classes are implemented using NIO (that's why there's a channel available in the InputStream). NIO still has to obey limits set by OS and file system parameters. Have you tried to upload an 8GB file? If so, what errors did you see? What OS/file system is the destination system?

I've used Jakarta Commons Net 1.4.0 API and I tried uploading a file of size 8GB to a FTP server, after transferring 2.14GB I'm getting a CopyStreamException.
I tried uploading manually the same file through FTP PUT command it uploaded successfully.

There is enough disk space at FTP Server. When I tried uploading the same file through FTP PUT command it uploaded successfully.
