The FTP Adapter transfers some files in Binary mode despite having the ASCII FileType.
In this case, there are two FTP Adapters that are called by BPEL Processes:

- Adapter#1 FileType is "binary".
- Adapter#2 FileType is "ascii".

Both FTP Adapters use the same Connection Pool (same JNDI name).
Adapter#2 (ascii) may transfer a file in Binary mode when the two Adapters are continuously executed in the order, Adapter#1 (binary) -> Adapter#2 (ascii).
