I want to copy a file from FTP server and later i want to copy the content of the file in the database which is there on another server.
During these processes if there is any kind of network failure HOW can i find out and handle these kind of situations?

Need advice.

thanks you

If there is a network disconnect during the copy operation, there typically will be an I/O error thrown; make sure that your code that does the copying properly handles the I/O error.

For subtler errors, probably the best thing would be to get the checksum of the file before copying and again after copying; if the checksums don't match, an error occurred in the copy process.
