XQuery/FTP Client

MotivationEdit

You would like to interact with a remote FTP server running remotely directly from your XQuery program. You would like to perform operations such as list, get and put files.

FTP Module InterfacesEdit

The FTP module has the following interfaces:

  ftpclient:get-connection($host as xs:string, $username as xs:string, $password as xs:string) xs:long?
  ftpclient:list($connection-handle as xs:long, $remote-directory as xs:string) document-node()?
  ftpclient:get-binary-file($connection-handle as xs:long, $remote-directory as xs:string, $file-name as xs:string) xs:base64Binary?
  ftpclient:send-binary-file($connection-handle as xs:long, $remote-directory as xs:string, $file-name as xs:string, $data as xs:base64Binary) xs:boolean

Sample UsageEdit

In this example we will open a connection to a remote FTP server, login and list the files.
