Requirement

At times, many of us have faced a requirement where someone asks us to go and check in a SFTP server if there are files pending, if the jobs to pick up the file are correct or not. In this case, if you have multiple folder, you would go into a SFTP Client and go to each folder to check if there is a file.

Instead of that we can create a small JAR to do this for us.

Solution

We write a JAVA code to do this for us. Note that the JAVA Code looks for a properties file in the same folder as that of the JAR file and create a file with the output. Please create a property file with name config.properties.txt and place it in the same folder as your JAR File is.

config.properties.txt

SFTPHOST=<Give your Host Here>
SFTPPORT=<Give your Port Here>
SFTPUSER=<Give your User Id Here>
SFTPPASS=<Give your Password Here>
DIRS=<Give your Directories Here separated by comma>

Please find the source code for the same.
