The Kava Telnet Application 1.0 reviewDownload
The KTA is a complete telnet and SSH application designed for use by both end-users and developers
The KTA is a complete telnet and SSH application designed for use by both end-users and developers. For end-users it provides a cross-platform vt320-compatible terminal written in Java.
For developers it provides an extensible plugin API that can be used to implement automated telnet and SSH solutions in a client/server environment.
Java 1.4.2 or later
The configuration file for the KTA controls which plugins it loads and what properties are set per plugin. It uses the standard Java Properties file format - a hash (#) indicates the start of a comment, and each line is a key/value pair assigned by an equality sign (=).
A config file that will create a basic terminal window connecting via telnet will look similar to this:
# General settings
plugins = Socket,Telnet,Terminal
pluginPath = de.mud.jta.plugin
layout.Terminal = Center
Help.url = http://www.example.com/help/
Socket.host = telnet.example.com
Socket.port = 23
To specify a config file for the KTA to use, the -config parameter must be specified when the KTA is started. As an application, the command is:
java -jar jta.jar -config myconfig.cfg
Or in an applet:
< param name="config" value="myconfig.cfg" / >
As a developer, you can read properties from the configuration file by registering as a ConfigurationListener and parsing the PluginConfig object that is passed into the listener function from the bus.
What's New in This Release:
This release is based on JTA 2.6.
