What is the Maverick Synergy Java SSH API?

Maverick Synergy is a Java implementation of the SSH2 protocol. It helps Java developers connect their Java applications to SSH servers to execute commands, transfer files, access remote network services, and much more.

Synergy can also be used as an SSH server to allow other SSH clients to connect to your application. You can create your own Command Line Interface, develop commands in Java, and send and receive files on your custom file system.
