We have a requirement to write the script(Environment is Windows-server and client both). Script connects to FTP server, downlaod the files and transfers them one shared location on another box. Script should run every 4 hrs. Average file size is quite big- 1.5GB. and there will be 4/5 files at a time.
I am thinking of using Apache FTP client and core java(timer,scheduler etc) to achive this ?
Any other better tools to do this?
