      Here would be the doSetLastModifiedTime() method for SftpFileObject.
      The reason it was left out in the first place was that one needed to
      add a piece to jsch to make this happen.
      Therefore I add here also a patched version of jsch-0.1.15 (as attachment) so
      you can see that the patch compiles and works with the added source code of course.
      So let's start with jsch.
      The only addition was one method to com.jcraft.jsch.ChannelSftp

      • Sets the given attributes with the given mtime to a file denoted by the path
        public void setMTime(String path, int mtime, SftpATTRS attr) throws SftpException{

      attr.setACMODTIME(attr.getATime(), mtime);
      sendSETSTAT(path.getBytes(), attr);

      // Check for errors
      int i=io.in.read(buf.buffer, 0, buf.buffer.length);
      int length=buf.getInt();
      int type=buf.getByte();

      { throw new SftpException(SSH_FX_FAILURE, ""); }


      { throwStatusError(buf, i); }

      catch(Exception e)

      { if(e instanceof SftpException) throw (SftpException)e; throw new SftpException(SSH_FX_FAILURE, ""); }

      The nice side effect is that attr gets the new mtime and thus is uptodate with
      the remote filesystem. Maybe we should in the case of error put the old mtime back.
      By the way if anyone knows how to submit patches to jsch project that would be
      appreciated, since it is not in cvs and there was an unanswered question about this
      in jsch's discussion forum.
      Then comes the patch to vfs to SftpFileObject

        Here the problem was that jsch uses int for time values which we know is not a
        very good idea.
        Further SFTP version 5 says that they should be long values, but jsch implements
        versions 0,1,2 and 3
        so maybe it was int before. This string trick was the only way I could come up
        with to keep
        the int precise.
        One thing I am wondering is that why is jzlib not part of vfs dependencies. And
        could the compression be
        easily enabled? If jzlib is not available
        com/jcraft/jsch/jcraft/Compression.java is not compiled
        with jsch. So if someone knows more about this, speak.
