YADE uses a Virtual File System (VFS) as an interface to access and transfer files from source systems to target systems.
- The VFS works as a layer that encapsulates details of individual file transfer protocols such as FTP, SFTP etc..
- The VFS brings a major shift in perspective: file transfers are not effected from a local host to a remote host or vice versa, instead transfers are a effected as copy or move operations between any VFS source system and any target system.
- The VFS allows to use any combination of source system and target system for file transfers.
The protocols that can be used with VFS are:
- FTP, SFTP, FTPS
- HTTP/HTTPS FEATURE AVAILABILITY STARTING FROM RELEASE 1.7
- WebDav FEATURE AVAILABILITY STARTING FROM RELEASE 1.8
- File system including UNC file names and Samba (SMB)
The YADE Implementation Architecture shows the integration of the VFS into the YADE architecture.
The Virtual File System allows more flexibility when integrating new protocols. Get in Contact with the SOS if you require support of additional protocols.
