Hello Mates

I am in confusion.

I have to transfer files over Network.
I am told not to use HTTP, HTTPS or FTP in Java code
but to use some other technology.

Kindly tell me what currently industries are using for transferring and receiving files using Java.

I am told to use JMX, is it suitable or any other technology exists.

Please guide me thank you

JMX is not suitable. It would help if you told us *why* HTTP and FTP are out, as those are standard ways of transferring files. Raw sockets would be an option if you want to implement a file transfer protocol on top of those.

Thank you very much for looking into issue.

What are Raw sockets and how it works,
is there some other technology in java for said purpose?

HTTP and FTP are not so secure way to transfer.

That's why we have HTTPS and Secure FTP. If you have to ask questions like these, I don't think it's likely that you can write your own file transfer protocol which is secure.
