Subject RE: [NET] SFTP vs. FTPS
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 20:28:31 GMT
Hi Steve,

sftp is a sub-specification of the SSH protocol (you'll surely
find the RFC or just
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSH_file_transfer_protocol 
As for a Java library, Eclipse has been using
  http://www.jcraft.com/jsch/
for years in order to provide the SSH channel for CVS, and since
3 years I'm successfully using the same library to run sftp inside 
Eclipse as part of my project
  http://www.eclipse.org/dsdp/tm

I've been told that there's another Java library for SSH
(Ganymed) and some claim it's better, but I haven't looked
at it
  http://www.ganymed.ethz.ch/ssh2/
I believe at Eclipse we couldn't use this since it seems to
include all cryptographic code and Eclipse can't just go
ship / export crypto code that easily.


Cheers,
