The Kava Telnet Application is complete telnet and SSH application.
Version: 1.0The 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.
Operating System: Linux
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.
