Hey there! I'm a computer nerd who spends his days messing with Grails/Groovy/Java/SQL. From time to time I dabble in mobile development and have been occasionally seen speaking about those applications around California. In my previous life, I was an adjunct computer science instructor and spent my nights grading papers, trying to get students to learn C++. These nights, my wife puts up with me tossing and turning thinking about whatever it is us computer folk think about in the wee hour of the morning, wondering if I'll ever fall asleep. Who knows?

  • submit to reddit
@Grab(group='com.jcraft', module='jsch', version='0.1.46')
import com.jcraft.jsch.*

java.util.Properties config = new java.util.Properties()
config.put "StrictHostKeyChecking", "no"

JSch ssh = new JSch()
Session sess = ssh.getSession "user", "", 22
sess.with {
	setConfig config
	setPassword "somecomplicatedpassword"
	Channel chan = openChannel "sftp"
	ChannelSftp sftp = (ChannelSftp) chan;
	def sessionsFile = new File('c:/important_document.doc')
	sessionsFile.withInputStream { istream -> sftp.put(istream, "/home/brippe/Documents/important_document.doc") }

This is a simple example of how to transfer a file using Groovy, JSch, and SFTP.
