boolean login(String user, String password)
boolean login(String user, String password, String account)
Normally we use char to represent a password so that it can
zeroed out afterward.
List<FtpFile> listFiles(String path)
If a FTP directory is huge, listing the files will cost a very
long time. I'll be very glad to see this method returns immediately
and fetching the information while user iterate through the output.
Is this implementation possible with this API?
