Chapter 60. File Operations

A group of components designed for file system manipulation is called File Operations.

File Operations components can create, copy, move, delete files and directories, list directories and read file attributes. The components can work with local files and remote files via FTP or Apache Hadoop HDFS. Access to sandboxes is also supported when running on the Server. It also offers limited support on other protocols (e.g. copy files from the web using the HTTP protocol); however, archived content manipulation is not supported (e.g. zip, gzip and tar protocols).

Note that when working with remote files, the server and the client should be synchronized.
