I know about that configuration setting.. But, I was hesitant to use it. Looks like, I need to ask the user whether (s)he confirms the fingerprint. And based on that selection, i should try setting this configuration setting.
In case I need more info, will get back to you.

|Unfortunately, in the current implementation,

|My code does the following (high level)
|* setKnownHosts (to my known hosts file)
|* Session session = jsch.getSession(user, host, 22);
|In case of an exception (UnknownHostKey), I do this:
| HostKey hk = session.getHostKey();
| HostKeyRepository repo = jsch.getHostKeyRepository();
| repo.add(hk, null);
|Throws a NullPointerException as hk is null. (This makes sense as the
|session might not have the required info.) How can I get the host key of
|the remote machine and add it?
session.getHostKey() will return null, if you reject to accept
the remote hostkey.
How about using JSch#setHostKeyRepository() ?
