My company is required to use SFTP (SSH FTP) to transfer data to a new partner, but I haven't been able to find any good Java libraries. I have found a few commercial and open source ones, but they look relatively hacked together and poorly documented. I did find some good FTPS libraries (FTP over SSL), but none of the senior engineers were aware of that standard and decided against it.
Has anyone had experience with an SFTP library in Java?
I have no idea whether it's poorly documented or not (I just look at the source code, that's documentation enough right ), the example programs were pretty clear.
3sp also do an ant task that supports SSH (it's called maverick, goto www.sshtools.com). The task itself is free, but I'm not sure what the licensing requirements would be if you were to embed it into a product. Of course, if you're just transferring files to an internal client, you could just use a cronjob + ant right
I have no java certifications. This makes me a bad programmer. Ignore my post.
