Hi,

Can any one tell me how to set file lastModifiedTime after copying files through FTP. I am using commons-net-1.4.1.jar to copy files from local system to server.
Eg: local file name “test.doc” (Today, December 29, 2009, 5:09:33 PM) when I moving this file to server, the files are moved successfully but the time is updated as server current time. But I need local file time like (Today, December 29, 2009, 5:09:33 PM). Below code I am using for uploading files to server.




Can any one please help me to overcome this issue?

I don't think the FTP protocol supports this. Any FTP program I've used so far simply sets the last modified date as "now".

you might be able to tar them up, ftp the tarball, then untar them on the destination machine. I think that would preserve the timestamps.

Not looking good. I think this might be the end. Wait! Is that a tiny ad?
