Hi all,
I have a applet class for downloading a drawing files from a unix server to a local NT box. It downloads the files well. But when the file contains "#" symbol in its name, it is not downloading the file... instead it is downloading some .jsp files instead of the drawing file. I would like to know whether "#" is a illegal character to java.
I have attached a part of the code here
sErrorTextField.setText("downloading files . . .");
StringTokenizer stringtokenizer = new StringTokenizer(sFileNameList, "|");
for(StringTokenizer stringtokenizer1 = new StringTokenizer(sBusIdList, "|"); stringtokenizer1.hasMoreTokens()
sFileName = stringtokenizer.nextToken();
sBusId = stringtokenizer1.nextToken();
String s = "/servlet/filedownload/" + sBusId + "?filenameformat=" + sFileName;
URL url = new URL(getDocumentBase().toString());
URL url1 = new URL(url.getProtocol(), url.getHost(), url.getPort(), s);
URLConnection urlconnection = url1.openConnection();
urlconnection.setRequestProperty("Cookie", "WebLogicSession=" + inputSessionID);
InputStream inputstream = urlconnection.getInputStream();
String s2 = sClientLocation + "/" + sFileName;
sTextArea.append("Checked Out " + sFileName + "\n");
FileOutputStream fileoutputstream = null;
fileoutputstream = new FileOutputStream(s2);
byte abyte0[] = new byte[1000];
int i;
while((i = > -1)
fileoutputstream.write(abyte0, 0, i);
sErrorTextField.setText("download stopped ...");
Thanks in Advance
