Hello all, this is my new blog post on a simple application that I developed a while ago. I am writing the blog post about the application, what it does and its utility in real world. The idea behind the application was mainly of my colleague and friend
Nitesh. His idea helped me in developing the application.
The idea behind the application is to track all devices connected over the network. This application would get the name of the
device and the
mac address or the
physical address of the device. For developing this application I have used a tool named
nmap which would gather up all the details of the devices over the network,
Java to manipulate the nmap output and get the filtered data, the power of
shell scripts to bind in the process of
java compilation along with an inbuilt utility provided by Linux and Unix shell known as
crontab that helped me in simulating the application to execute over a certain interval of time.
NMAPin the system. To install nmap in the system follow the required link.
Javain the system.
- Idea of
Jenkins, any other continuous integration tools that can carry out cron jobs.
Application implementation structure and its description
To understand the implementation and the strategy please follow my git page where I have described the working and the procedure for
Thank you all, thats all for today. Hope to come up with something new very soon !! 😉
