  • OT: quick question any java CIFS implementations?

    Hi all,

    Apologies for posting a message that has NOTHING to do with spring, but I thought one of you guys might know the answer. Please remove this message if it is hideously offensive in its unrelated nature

    Basically I am looking for a *server* implementation of the CIFS (samba) protocol in Java.

    The application we are developing has a tree structure at it's root, and we want to allow the user the ability to browse it via the file system.

    There are lots and lots of c*client* implementaions in Java, but I cannot find any *open source* implementations?

    Any ideas?

    Take a look at the alfresco project:
    It is a new open source Java content management system that includes (among other things) a built in document repository and CIFS implementation. I know that there are some JNI (native) components in Alfresco, but I'm not sure if those native components are for the CIFS implementation or not?
    Note that the project is still quite new, and so far has only achieved preview (alpha) releases.

    - Andy
