    Question HTTP file download results in empty file

    I am trying to accomplish a very simple task using PDI: Downloading a csv file from a http location and saving it to disk. I created a job, then added the "HTTP" step, specified source URL and target path and launched the job. It completes successfully, but the target file is empty. The expected size would be about 250 KB.
    On the server side, the csv file is created dynamically but that souldn't be a problem, right?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Edit: PDI versions tested: CE- and CE-

    Well, nevermind. The source seems to generate empty files under certain circumstances. So PDI is not to be blamed.
