#jSCSI - A Java iSCSI Framework

jSCSI is a feature-complete iSCSI implementation in Java only. Platform-independent and fast, jSCSI represents a premium example how low-level protocols can be pushed to higher levels. jSCSI contains a server (target), a client (initiator) and common classes to work with the protocol.

Build Status

##Using jSCSI

  • Get the latest jar over Github or Maven
  • Use the target and/or the initiator-interfaces in your project

Note that the target is capable to run on its own while the initiator can only be utilized as library. To run the target, please execute:

mvn SCHEMA.xsd CONFIG.xml

The schema and an example config are accessible as download as well and included under bundles/target/src/main/resources .

For further documentation and as an example, please refer to the examples in the initiator- and target-module.


  • README: this readme file
  • LICENSE: license file
  • bundles: bundles containing the projects
  • pom.xml: Simple pom (yes we use Maven)

##Further information

The project is currently under refactoring, the documentation is accessible under (pointing to and a mailinglist has been set up:


  • A TechReport describes the second iteration of the framework: PDF
  • The framework was presented at the Jazoon '07 as work in progress: PDF
  • jSCSI acted as backend for a block visualization presented at the InfoVis 2006: PDF

##Concluded Thesis

  • Target 1.0 (english): TO FOLLOW
