Apache Common VFS

I am trying to set up a test case for monitoring files using Apache Commons VFS. Basically I would like to do some work if the monitored file is created, deleted, changed causing a FileChangeEvent.

Here is the test code. I changed the files at both locations. It works for HTTP but not for FTP. Any help would be appreciated.

Files were located and results from showProperties:
URL: ftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/test.txt
getName(): ftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/test.txt
BaseName: test.txt
Extension: txt
Path: /test.txt
Scheme: ftp
URI: ftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/test.txt
Root URI: ftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/
Parent: ftp://myusername:mypassword@somehost/
Type: file
Exists: true
Readable: true
Writeable: true
Root path: /
Size: 41 bytes

Changing the HTTP File created the FileChangeEvent. FTP did not.
File [http://somehost/test/test123.txt] changed event from [org.pdc.apps.vfs.FileMonitorTest$MyFileListener@56d90453]
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
