retrieve a file.
In StreamBase Studio, import this sample with the following steps:
From the top-level menu, select> .
ftpto narrow the list of options.
Select FTP Java operator from the Data Constructs and Operators category.
StreamBase Studio creates a project for the sample.
In the Project Explorer view, open the sample you just loaded.

When you load the sample into StreamBase Studio, Studio copies the sample project's files to your Studio workspace, which is normally part of your home directory, with full access rights.
Load this sample in StreamBase Studio, and thereafter use the Studio workspace copy of the sample to run and test it, even when running from the command prompt.
Using the workspace copy of the sample avoids permission problems. The default workspace location for this sample is:
