Hehe, even StackOverflow fails occasionally. Try
for a start. Search for "java quadratic sieve" for some more code,
although most of the results seems to be more sample code rather than
production quality.
I vaguely remember there should be up to 12 Java based projects
including more or less sophisticated integer factorization stuff,
although I'm not current there and most of them could be dead.

Yes, developing and testing hash algorithms, pseudo random number
generators, crypto stuff etc. uses factorization, but everyday use
generally doesn't.
Apparently you are into serious hard core stuff. As fascinating as these
problems most likely are, they are not the primary target for commons
math, at least until now.
