I belive the SmbSession.logon() method should meet the first two objectives. See
the FAQ. For "tansfer resumption" use SmbFileXxputStream.skip() or maybe


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
