Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-421) Allows Identity Repository for SFTP
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2012 14:19:43 GMT


Benjamin Piwowarski commented on VFS-421:


I coded the changes, but providing a test for this is a bit more difficult, because the only
IdentityRepository JSch provides is a package protected one. If I want to provide a patch,
I need to copy a couple of files from JSch (BSD style license) into the sftp.test package
- would this be OK? On the other hand, this is not a big patch and doesn't break anything
(when testing sftp); after all, many authentication methods are not tested.

I attach the first version of the patch (without the test case).

needed to allows SSH authentication through an SSH agent, e.g. using
