Is Alfresco (jLAN) a fitting replacement for jCIFS lib and to what extend?

Hello devs,

I apologize in advance if this is not the right place to ask. I was digging in the documentation and then here in the forums but I couldn't find anything related. Please excuse my ignorance if this was already asked and answered :)

The company I'm working for is building a product that revolves around extensive SMB usage. Currently we are relying on jCIFS lib as an open source SMB client implementation but recently we struggled against many issues and bugs. Since jCIFS has almost zero support from the community, bugs are rarely being fixed, and the supported version of SMB is 1.0 (which is quite old) we are looking for a replacement.

What we want is to have a java API and implementation for listing SMB shares, read/write files, rename, delete and all other related file operations. We do not have any interest in the server part.

I couldn't find any jLAN examples which cover our usecases. I was hoping you could help me with that.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,
