vngx-jsch - A Java SSH implementation

vngx-jsch is an updated version of the popular JSch SSH library written in pure Java. It has been updated to Java 6 with all the latest language features and improved code clarity.

Improvements include:

  • Javadoc comments! Have you ever been frustrated at the lack of comments in the original JSch library?
  • Improved error handling - many errors which were silently ignored or masked properly bubble up and offer more detailed descriptions.
  • Performance improvements including code optimization and enhanced concurrency practices.
  • Enhanced configuration for Sessions and configuration constants for specifying client-defined properties.
  • Added support for SHA-256, HMAC-SHA-256, "diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256" and "diffie-hellman-group14-sha1" algorithms.
  • Added support for more detailed application logging for debugging.
  • Updated to more closely follow the official RFC specifications for SSH as well as added detailed documentation from RFCs into the comments.
  • Maven build process
  • OSGi compatible
