Hi Travis,

Have you started on updating the jcifs-Kerberos library yet?  This has just
come onto my radar, as well, so just checking in on this. 

All the best,

Hi Travis,

There is no repository because there is only one person maintaining
the code (me). So just download the full package with the source. Old
packages are under the "old" directory like:


Note: You cannot list the 'old' directory - you must know the exact
version number of the package you wish to download.

Meaning you can download the last Kerberos package, download the
corresponding version of JCIFS, compare and then adapt the changes to
the latest version of JCIFS.

Note: The Mr. Shun Kerberos patch is not optimal because the existing
JCIFS codebase is hard coded to use the NtlmPasswordAuthentication
(NPA) class. So supplying credentials is awkward to say the least (and
the patch does not use the JAAS Subject based security model).
Factoring out the NPA will have to happen with JCIFS 2.0 rewrite which
has been on hold for about 5 years or so ...
