Connection Protocols

The JADE YADE Client can use a number of protocols to make connections for the source and target parts of the transfer. These protocols are specified in parameters set in protocol fragment elements in the JADE YADE XML configuration.


Connection types

As noted for the FTPS protocol element example above, each protocol element requires a connection type. The connection types available are:

  • BasicConnection, with a required Hostname and an optional Password
    The BasicConnection is used for the following ProtocolFragments:
    • FTP, FTPS, Jump, SFTP
    • SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 proxies
  • URLConnection with a required URL
    The URLConnection is used with the following ProtocolFragments:
    • WebDAV

Specifying Connection Protocols

Connection protocols are specified in the Fragments elements of the XSD Schema. All fragments elements are child elements of the ProtocolFragments element as shown schematically below:


Note that any number of ProtocolFragments can be specified within a configuration, allowing a number of authentication methods to be predefined for a particular file transfer operation. The AlternativeFragments element can be used to specify a number of alternative connections and authentication methods for a file transfer profile.

Example Configuration

An example configuration for an FTP connection showing both the Fragments and Profiles branches can be seen in the YADE User Manual - Simple File Transfer with Basic Authentication article.
