Perhaps the most common protocols used in file transfer today are FTP, FTPS and SFTP.  While the acronyms for these protocols are similar,  there are some key differences among them, in particular how data are exchanged, the level of security provided and firewall considerations.  Learning these key differences can help you when choosing a file transfer protocol or troubleshooting common connection issues.

Validating Email Addresses with Java

Posted by Charles Ott on Wed, Jan 04, 2012 @ 11:40 AM

Getting validation for an email address using JSCAPE's Secure iNet Factory library is a lot easier than getting personal validation (although let me say right now, dear Reader, that I think you're smart to learn more about the EmailInspector class, and you're all right with me!). The EmailInspector class has four levels of validation and you can give a submitted email address only as much scrutiny as it needs. In each case, the EmailInspector returns true if the address passes validation, and throws an exception if it does not.

Retrieving email using Java POP Library

Posted by Charles Ott on Thu, Dec 29, 2011 @ 06:54 AM

Email messages are made of required parts, such as the bunch-of-exclamation-marks part ["HOO!!!!!!!"], the emoticon part [;-)], and the abbreviations part [ROTFL]. All emails are required to contain these parts (at least, all the emails I get have them), as well as other parts such as the Subject, the From, the To and the Body. The JSCAPE Secure iNet Factory library lets you use Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) to write a client program that will retrieve your email and look at the parts. (That is, the parts in the second list!!!!!!! LMAO :-)).

Posted by Charles Ott on Wed, Dec 21, 2011 @ 09:46 AM

Using JSCAPE's Secure iNet Factory library, it's not hard to retrieve your email easily and with complete security from GMail, Hotmail or other servers that require APOP authentication, and we'll show you how in this article. On the other hand, how does your hand-addressed Christmas card get all the way across America to your Aunt Petunia's house, traveling over purple mountain majesties and across fruited plains, carried by trains and airplanes and, for Pete's sake, by a friendly mail person who walks it down the street? This process is a complete mystery and some scientist should investigate it!

Secure File Transfer with Java SCP Library

Posted by Charles Ott on Thu, Dec 15, 2011 @ 11:57 AM

SCP is another old SSH (Secure Shell) file-transfer protocol — it can be traced back to the rcp command that was added to BSD Unix in 1982, which makes it the same age as ET The Extraterrestrial. It may have been the protocol ET used to communicate with his mothership. If he had had JSCAPE's Secure FTP Factory library, things might have gone more easily.
