Re: Link Sleuth in Java
- Pro for Client;
Should the day come that you no longer choose to build xenu (ie you get tired of it) then the server edition would see the end of days. Sticking with the client edition if I read this correctly would allow the program to continue for at least a few years past it's final version.
Case in point I use a non internet program that does not require a server. It has not been updated since January 2005. The program still runs flawless on XP and works well on Vista and Windows 7 including the local lan portion of the program.
I would replace the program but the newer programs just don't have the features and this program does not appear to be a security risk even at it's age.

broken links get uploaded to the public server. That prevents
broken links from popping into the users' eye as much as possible
and saves bandwidth into the bargain. The public server is
checked only once in a while, mainly after certain modifications
which may or may not work as expected on the public system
(there is no such thing as a 100% identical system & environment
for public and local/dev servers, so after all other test we make

- Hi All,
I've used Xenu a lot in the past but more recently needed a version in Java, so I wrote one. Unfortunately, I've never had time to document and package it and make it easy for other people to download and use, but it seems to work well enough for me.
It's been tucked away within another Sourceforge project for years now. If you known a bit about compiling and running command-line Java apps, take a look at http://jftpsync.sourceforge.net/
The relevant sub-branch of files is under http://jftpsync.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/jftpsync/trunk/src/uk/org/beton/jxenu/ and the app is called jxenu (what else?!)
Perhaps we ought to make it more widely available. Thoughts welcome.
It is licensed using the LGPL.
- Please use a different name... one that doesn't have "xenu" in it,
because this suggests I have something to do with it, which I haven't.
I had a very, very quick look, without compiling it... Is this a pure
command line software, i.e without a GUI?
