Our current FTP process spins up a file and executes Windows ftp.exe passing the file as a parameter. I want to use SBB to complete the download.

Currently the contents of the file are for example:


open remoteURL
userName
passWord
ascii
cd 'downloadSourceDirectory'
GET fileNamePrefix(+0) localDownloadDirectoryAndFileName
bye


The italicized items are parameterized varibles. My concern is the bolded portion which appears to be an auto-incrementor of sorts.

How can I accomplish this using SecureBlackBox?

Thanks very much!

After a bit more research, I believe i can rephrase my question above.

The (+0) above is a GDG data set indicator specifying the current version of the file.

Is there support for GDG data sets in SecureBlackBox?

As you create the filename which SecureBlackbox needs to transfer, you can construct it in any way you like. SecureBlackbox knows nothing about commands of ftp.exe application in Windows (and note that those commands are NOT FTP protocol commands). Also we don't know what GDG is and how to make use of it.

Can you please look into this. This is a technology used in enterprise-wide solutions.

I have included a link to the description of GDG and what it is used for.

I am sorry but there's nothing to look at on our side. SecureBlackbox is a library which does what you tell it to do, and it's you who specifies names of the files to download. It's not SecureBlackbox' job. We have higher-level BizCrypto product (components for integration with business servers) and there such things are appropriate, but SecureBlackbox should be free from such specific stuff.
