Subject: [jcifs] MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: smb
I have been using jCIFs for the past days to develop a plugin for Nutch
(the Open Source search engine) to crawl windows shares directory. I
set-up and installed the plugin but when I am running the application, I
get this java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: smb. This is
how I set up the smb environment:
1. The URL syntax is as follow: smb://server/share/ and the
properties are loaded from a property file.
2. The java system property has been set as follow:
-Djava.protocol.handler.pkgs=jcifs passed to the JVM when the program is
3. I use ANT to run the application, therefore ANT will load all
the necessary classes needed by the application to run.
4. The application is not run from a container as it is a
standalone application therefore I do not think I will have any security
permission problem, nevertheless bullet 2 should fix that problem.
I don't know what the problem is as I read the FAQ and follow all the
instructions to the word and still can't have it to run properly. Also I
tried to set the JAVA system property as follow
(-Djava.protocol.handler.pkgs=smb) but not luck either. Can someone help
me out with this, as I'll share the plugin code with the Open Source
I'll be waiting for reply.
