Getting Positive Completion reply from FTP Server using Java

Getting Positive Completion reply from FTP Server using Java


package com.simplecode.com;

import java.io.IOException;

import org.apache.commons.net.ftp.FTPClient;
import org.apache.commons.net.ftp.FTPConnectionClosedException;

public class FtpLogin {
	public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
		FTPClient ftpClient = new FTPClient();
		String errorMessage = null;
		boolean result;
		try {
			// Connect to the localhost
			int reply = ftpClient.getReplyCode();

	        if (!FTPReply.isPositiveCompletion(reply)) {
	            errorMessage = "FTP server refused connection: " + ftpClient.getReplyString();
			// login to ftp server
			result = ftpClient.login("admin", "admin");
			if (result == true) {
				System.out.println("Successfully logged in!");
			} else {
				System.out.println("Login Fail!");
		}catch (FTPConnectionClosedException e) {
		} finally {
			try {
			} catch (FTPConnectionClosedException e) {



The function ftpClient.getReplyCode(); is used to get reply code on sending ftp connection, and the command FTPReply.isPositiveCompletion(reply) is used to check weather the reply code is positive or not.
