Installing the Maverick Legacy Client

There are two methods of configuring your development environment to use the Maverick Legacy Client.

  1. Download our distribution zip file that includes all jar files and dependencies and include in your classpath.
  2. Configure your project to use maven and configure your project to use our Maven repository.

If you are using our commercial APIs you will need to obtain an evaluation key and install the license in your project.

Including Maverick Legacy Client in your Classpath
 

Download and extract our archive. Jar files are located in the dist folder, Third party dependencies are located in the lib folder.

For developers using the client API only you can use

maverick-legacy-client-{version}-all.jar

This is a single archive with all client features, use along with *all* dependencies in lib folder.

If you are combining the API with our server product use:

maverick-legacy-client-{version}-no-common.jar
maverick-common-{version}.jar
maverick-legacy-server-{version}-no-common.jar (from our server distribution).

For those developers that prefer not to have the version in the jar file-name you can find un-versioned jar files in dist/other folder.


Using the Maven Repository


Add our repository to your pom.xml

<repository>
    <id>sshtools</id>
    <name>sshtools-releases</name>
    <url>http://artifactory.javassh.com/ext-releases-local</url>
</repository>

Then add the dependency to your pom.xml

<dependency>
   <groupId>com.sshtools</groupId>
    <artifactId>maverick</artifactId>
    <version>1.6.2</version>
</dependency>

 

Obtaining an Evaluation License Key

Visit http://www.sshtools.com/products/j2ssh-maverick

Installing your License

Copy the license key into your source code and place it somewhere in your code before you make any calls to the API.

For versions of J2SSH Maverick 1.4.28 and above you can optionally save your license as a text file and set the following properties to point the API in the right location:

-Dmaverick.license.directory=/somepath

-Dmaverick.license.filename=somefile.txt

If you omit these system properties they will default to the value of System.getProperty("user.dir") for the directory and.maverick-license.txt for the filename.

 

Example Code

Please take a look at the /examples folder in the distribution zip file. There are a number of code examples there that should get you on track with your development.
