I got an assignment to use ssh to interface to some legacy-system. There
is only one specific command which gets on argument and then reads some
details from standard-input. On unix it would be typically invoked like
this "/bin/doSomething createObject < /tmp/object".
I think I should be able to accomplish the same thing via jsch and using
"exec". "shell" seems to be some overhead.
For now I can use ssh-public-key authentication to invoke some command
like "ls -al /tmp/" and read its output. Adding some arguments to the
command is not a big deal. ;-)
However, input-redirection just won't work. I suppose I got lost in all
the streams in directions (is channel.setInputStream() referring to sent
as OUTPUT by me which is to be used as INPUT on the other side?)?
For now, I would be very happy just to no wheter I can in fact
accomplish my task with an exec-channel? I might be totally mistaken
An example regarding those streams would be even better. ;-)
