I have a java app that produces a zip file.  After the zip file is created it needs to move the zip file from the client machine to a server.  What is the best way to move the zip file.  Is FTP the best way?

If you have a network share you can write it directly, otherwise yes

Just found out it is a solaris box, so I am guessing it will have to be FTP.  Do you have any examples of ftp code for me.  I will increase the points for you're time

>>Just found out it is a solaris box,

That doesn't make any difference if you have a mounted share:

new FileOutputStream("machine_name:/share_name/file");

No share, then


URLConnection conn = new URLConnection("ftp://username:password@solarisbox/x/y/filename");
conn.setDoOutput(true);
OutputStream out = conn.getOutputStream();
// Now write to it - path will have to exist

Open in new window
