let actually make the property name:


what you think chris?

hey yunhee,

like chris said i would use the java properties he defined and modify the following class
to set port to it by default to it:


your change would probably look something like:

public class JschSftpProtocolFactory implements ProtocolFactory {

 public static final String PORT_PROPERTY = "org.apache.oodt.cas.protocol.sftp.port";

 private int port;

   public JschSftpProtocolFactory() {
  port = System.getProperty(PORT_PROPERTY, -1);


up can then add the property (commented out) to:

I think the best way to do this would be to:

1. Suggest a system property inside of the push_pull_framework.properties
file, e.g., org.apache.oodt.cas.protocol.sftp.portNum
2. To flow that system property down into the protocol API layer (e.g., expect
it to be read and set by the Push Pull framework, and then passed down
into the SFTP protocol; or more generally just change it to a protocol only
property and set there).

Let me know what you think? We can file a JIRA issue and
when we have decided on an approach, create a patch and go from there.
