This is an Internet protocol suite Java library originally developed by ORO, Inc. This version supports Finger, Whois, TFTP, Telnet, POP3, FTP, NNTP, SMTP, and some miscellaneous protocols like Time and Echo as well as BSD R command support.
The purpose of the library is to provide fundamental protocol access, not higher-level abstractions. Therefore, some of the design violates object-oriented design principles. Our philosophy is to make the global functionality of a protocal accesible (e.g., TFTP send file and receive file) when possible, but also provide access to the fundamental protocols where applicable so that the programmer may construct his own custom implementations (e.g, the TFTP packet classes and the TFTP packet send and receive methods are exposed).
NetComponents was originally a commercial product, but after ORO dissolved, it was continued to be made available for those who found it useful. However, no updates have been made since version 1.3.8, released in 1998. Now that certain contract obligations have expired, it is possible to make the source code freely available under the The Apache Software License.

- Any Support for MAPI? by Kiran Patchigolla on March 14 2003 11:17 EST
Very, very nice. Does it also support SSH and SFTP?
Coherence: Easily share live data across a cluster!
This is awesome. Thanks a lot & Keep up the good work
I found this SSH library for Java
I've been using this for quite a while and it is great. Really helped me automate a lot of integration work. Very stable. The Ant ftp task is based on the old version.
Is there any support for MAPI in the Commons Net package? It did not look like it did. Is there any java interface or a JavaMail provider for MAPI?
