Set default JAVA path

Sometimes you need to use several JAVA versions in a single machine. But you can't change default running JAVA version. Changing PATH variable doesn't affect for this. You can remove system32 JAVA exe file and reset JAVA path for new version to run newly installed JAVA version.

exe running directory :- C:\Windows\System32
application exe name :- java.exe

Now, try version in command prompt using java -version command. This will show new JAVA version.

SFTP client with private key authentication

SFTP ( FTP over SSH ) is a secure way for file transferring. In JAVA application, you can use the following code to build a SFTP client with private key authentication. Here instead of password pass phase is used.

For this code, JSch JAVA library is used. Following jar files also used for code building.

  • jsch-0.1.51.jar
  • commons-vfs2-2.0.jar
  • commons-logging-1.2.jar

         JSch jSch = new JSch();
        final byte[] privatekey = readMyPrivateKeyFromFile(); // Private key must be byte array
        final byte[] passPhrase = "pass phase".getBytes();

            "myusername",    // String userName
            privatekey,          // byte[] privateKey 
            null,            // byte[] publicKey
            passPhrase  // byte[] passPhrase
        Session session = jSch.getSession("myusername", "hostname", 22);
        UserInfo ui = new UserInfoImpl(); // UserInfoImpl implements UserInfo
        Channel channel = session.openChannel("sftp");
        ChannelSftp sftp = (ChannelSftp) channel;

// Now you can execute any SFTP command for the sftp channel.
        final Vector files =".");
