I need to transfer one XML file to other FTP server on same network.

Please suggest me best method to do it.

I was thinking about sockets but in that case i need to put one programme on server machine also, right ?

If right then I dont want to do this.

Please suggest some better way.

Thanks and Regards,

The Apache Commons Net library contains an FTP client; see the javadocs of the class for example code.
