Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIVOT-864) Add a pluggable file system architecture to FileBrowser so remote browsing can be done
Date Tue, 28 May 2013 01:16:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-864?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13668012#comment-13668012

Roger Whitcomb commented on PIVOT-864:

Hi Sandro,
   I understand your concern.  I don't think all these are absolutely necessary for building,
nor deployment.  You get runtime logging notices, but not errors, if not all are included.
 But, the Commons VFS team is not finished with the 2.0 release, which is why it is still
SNAPSHOT.  I will update / delete .jar files as I figure out which ones are absolutely necessary,
and update to the real release VFS .jar once they release.  But, I figure we're still some
months away from releasing 2.1 so there should be some time to figure this all out.  I think
the only one that is absolutely necessary to build and browse local filesystems is the Apache
Commons VFS .jar file, so if that's all we include in our release, I think it will be enough
to build with, and there shouldn't be a problem with that.  I really wanted to get something
out there so you (and others) could take a look at what I'm doing, and make these kinds of
   And I did some tests and you don't need any of them (not even Commons VFS) to run with
IF you don't use the new classes .... (same as with the SVG support).
   But, I will definitely try to reduce the number of .jars needed to build with and update
the NOTICE/BUILD files about how to deal with them.  I'm sure the Commons folk will also update
their build/deployment instructions once they release the real 2.0 version, and then we can
refer to those as well.  Right now I had to dig around in the mvn repositories to even figure
out this set of .jar files :(  But, this set was necessary to not have any logging messages
come out when I initialized the default VFS file system manager, according to their list of
"supported" plugins.  But, of course, anyone can initialize their own version of the file
system manager and add/remove whatever plugins they want....  So, possibly I could do a different
initialization by default, too, that wouldn't have so many schemes supported.
   Still a work-in-progress, so ....  Thanks for the comments :)

> Our application requires the ability to be able to browse (for instance) a Linux machine
from the Windows desktop.  For this I would like to add (somehow) a pluggable file system
architecture so that I could (for instance) implement an FTP protocol underneath the FileBrowser
so that I can browse through directories and files on something other than the local machine.
 We would also need to be able to type in a host name or TCP/IP address to start browsing
the remote machine.
