I am very new to java, and have been struggling with it. I am looking for an easy way to get files that are situated on a remote server. For this I created a local ftp server on my windows xp, and now I am trying to give my test applet the following address:
uri = new URI("ftp://localhost/myTest/test.mid");
File midiFile = new File(uri);
catch (Exception ex)
You can't do this out of the box with ftp.
If your file is on http, you could do something similar to:
URL url = new URL("http://q.com/test.mid"); InputStream is = url.openStream(); // Read from is
If you want to use a library for doing FTP, you should check out Apache Commons Net
