“The Java based lightweight implementation of the Internet Engineering Task Force Secure Shell protocol provides secure remote log-in and other secure network services over an insecure network. The protocol has three major components: Transport Layer, User Authentication and Connection. The implementation is lightweight due to using the highly optimized cryptographic library IBM CryptoLite for Java, efficient buffer and I/O handling, memory reuse to avoid excessive garbage collection, and threads are not used.”
I had to code in java for two weeks (school projects) and I find it very nice to code with. Garbage collector rocks, and I don’t have to think about freeing resources all the time. I used to think that java sucks, because I had no experience in java programming, as probably most people that complain do
I’m waiting when they put it into the standard library.
