Hi ,
I have to remove files from SSH Server. I am using J2SSH.

I have written method to remove two files/directory from server. First directory is getting deleted successfully.
But deleting the 2nd directory i m getting the exception.

Below is my code and exception both.

Code :
public void removeFilesFromFTPServer (SftpClient sftp)
try {
sftp.rm("FBCHKBFHLLJEPIIMNJCP1231233677791"); // Running successfully
sftp.rm("MDCMAOCMAEBABMBHPHPL1231233677791"); // Here i m getting exception
}catch(IOException ioe)

Exception : Failure
at com.sshtools.j2ssh.sftp.SftpSubsystemClient.getOKRequestStatus(Unknown Source)
at com.sshtools.j2ssh.sftp.SftpSubsystemClient.removeDirectory(Unknown Source)
at com.sshtools.j2ssh.SftpClient.rm(Unknown Source)

Could you please help me what may be the reason.

Thanks in advance.

Did you look at the docs? Does the directory have to be empty for "rm" to remove it? Is it empty?
