This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
I got a simple solution. I don't know it will be considered as good practice or not.
My solution is:
My target platform is window only & it will be windows.
I did one thing I issued a command "net use" on command prompt through the code. Captured its output & parsed the required String there.
My applet will be called 5-10 times only in a day. So this should not hit the performance.
Still I will work on jCIFS.
