If you had used Google with search words "java" and "ssh", you would have found JSch and this site both on the first site for SSH.

Now searching on Telnet gives more unusable results, but fortunately that's where Apache Commons Net can help us out.

Apache Commons are licensed under the Apache license (no surprise there), which is an open source license. You can use it in commercial applications without charge, as long as the other provisions of the license are respected (like attribution of the code).

As an aside, if you have a choice of SSH and Telnet, use SSH. That's where everybody is moving to, mostly for security reasons.
