One of the recurring inquiries in SAP Sourcing has been the use of FTP within scripts. While this might be a simple task in Java, the biggest problem is that Sourcing 9.x doesn't use the all-too-familiar Apache Commons FTPClient.
In this blog post I will explain how to make use of the internal functions available in SAP Sourcing 9.x to facilitate working with FTP folders.
**WARNING**- this blog post will make use of Internal APIs. Even if I have tested and confirmed them working in 9.x versions, great care should be taken while implementing and supporting these APIs.
Check and confirm that your FTP integration System Properties are defined and access is granted to respective directory.
