FTPFileEntryParser defines the interface for parsing a single FTP file listing and converting that information into an FTPFile instance. Sometimes you will want to parse unusual listing formats, in which case you would create your own implementation of FTPFileEntryParser and if necessary, subclass FTPFile.

Here are some examples showing how to use one of the classes that implement this interface.

The first example uses the FTPClient.listFiles() API to pull the whole list from the subfolder subfolder in one call, attempting to automatically detect the parser type. This method, without a parserKey parameter, indicates that autodection should be used.

    FTPClient f=FTPClient();
    f.connect(server);
    f.login(username, password);
    FTPFile[] files = f.listFiles("subfolder");
 
The secondr example uses the FTPClient.listFiles()> API to pull the whole list from the current working directory in one call, but specifying by classname the parser to be used. For this particular parser class, this approach is necessary since there is no way to autodetect this server type.
    FTPClient f=FTPClient();
    f.connect(server);
    f.login(username, password);
    FTPFile[] files = f.listFiles(
      "org.apache.commons.net.ftp.parser.EnterpriseUnixFTPFileEntryParser",
      ".");
 
The third example uses the FTPClient.listFiles() API to pull a single file listing in an arbitrary directory in one call, specifying by KEY the parser to be used, in this case, VMS.
    FTPClient f=FTPClient();
    f.connect(server);
    f.login(username, password);
    FTPFile[] files = f.listFiles("VMS", "subfolder/foo.java");
 
For an alternative approach, see the FTPListParseEngine class which provides iterative access.

 public interface FTPFileEntryParser
 {
    
Parses a line of an FTP server file listing and converts it into a usable format in the form of an FTPFile instance. If the file listing line doesn't describe a file, null should be returned, otherwise a FTPFile instance representing the files in the directory is returned.

Parameters:
listEntry A line of text from the file listing
Returns:
An FTPFile instance corresponding to the supplied entry
 
     FTPFile parseFTPEntry(String listEntry);

    
Reads the next entry using the supplied BufferedReader object up to whatever delemits one entry from the next. Implementors must define this for the particular ftp system being parsed. In many but not all cases, this can be defined simply by calling BufferedReader.readLine().

Parameters:
reader The BufferedReader object from which entries are to be read.
Returns:
A string representing the next ftp entry or null if none found.
Throws:
java.io.IOException thrown on any IO Error reading from the reader.
    String readNextEntry(BufferedReader readerthrows IOException;


    
This method is a hook for those implementors (such as VMSVersioningFTPEntryParser, and possibly others) which need to perform some action upon the FTPFileList after it has been created from the server stream, but before any clients see the list. The default implementation can be a no-op.

Parameters:
original Original list after it has been created from the server stream
Returns:
Original list as processed by this method.
