Use JGIT with SSH

In this guide I will show you how to set up JGIT with SSH using Apache MINA.


First of all we need to import the maven dependencies:


<dependency>
   <groupId>org.eclipse.jgit</groupId>
   <artifactId>org.eclipse.jgit</artifactId>
   <version>6.8.0.202311291450-r</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
   <groupId>org.eclipse.jgit</groupId>
   <artifactId>org.eclipse.jgit.ssh.apache</artifactId>
   <version>6.8.0.202311291450-r</version>
</dependency>


We create a ssh factory:


SshdSessionFactory sshdSessionFactory = new SshdSessionFactoryBuilder()
​.setPreferredAuthentications("publickey,keyboard-interactive,password")
​.setHomeDirectory(FS.DETECTED.userHome())
​.setSshDirectory(sshDir)
​.build(new JGitKeyCache());
SshSessionFactory.setInstance(sshdSessionFactory);


Than we can simply clone a Repository:

var repository = "git@github.com:eclipse-jgit/jgit.git";
var directory = "./directory";

Git.cloneRepository()
.setURI(repository)
​.setDirectory(new File(directory))
​​.call();
