Hi there I need Urgent help please I am trying to connect to a FTP server but it bombs out at
mFTPClient = new FTPClient();
with this error when I mouse over FTPClient();
Note: This element neither has attached source nor attached Javadoc and hence no Javadoc could be found.

I Have downloaded the library file for
The full connection method is
public boolean ftpConnect(String host, String username,String password, int port){
                try {
                 mFTPClient = new FTPClient();
                 // connecting to the host
                 mFTPClient.connect(host, port);
                 // now check the reply code, if positive mean connection success
                 if (FTPReply.isPositiveCompletion(mFTPClient.getReplyCode())) {
                     // login using username & password
                     boolean status = mFTPClient.login(username, password);
                     /* Set File Transfer Mode
                      * To avoid corruption issue you must specified a correct
                      * transfer mode, such as ASCII_FILE_TYPE, BINARY_FILE_TYPE,
                      * EBCDIC_FILE_TYPE .etc. Here, I use BINARY_FILE_TYPE
                      * for transferring text, image, and compressed files.
                     return status;
             } catch(Exception e) {
                 Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(),"failed "+e+"/r/n Could not connect to"+host,Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
             return false;
please as I am still new to android and java development ANY help would be appreciated
The toast's are just for device test that I am able to see where it succeeds and where it fails
Kind Regards

don't know if you noted that I have the exact same connection method from that site I have downloaded the library file and added it to my project yet it needs a Javadoc that I know nothing of and also cant find it as a file only view it on the site in my question

this is depending how you are adding your dependencies
Go to Project=>Properties and select "Java Build Path"
Select "Order and Export" tab
Move "android 2.x.x" and "Android Dependencies" to the top of the list

1st right click on project=> Import=> expand general=> select archive File=> browse for your library file in my case commons-net-3.1.jar then click finish
2nd right click on project=> Properties=> select libraries tab=> Add external JARs=> then browse for the same file in my case commons-net-3.1.jar => click open=> and then ok
"javadoc.jar missing" error is no more
