You’re probably better off asking these questions on the jpcap and jnetpcap mailing lists (available from the “Public” tab) here:




Good luck,

Hi all,

  I'm not sure is it the right form to ask the question..... but hoping that someone can help me. I want to capture and visualize network traffic using java.... i found two libraries on net JPcap and JNetPcap. I'm not sure which one to use.. what is the difference in two libraries.... I have already captured traffic using libpcap in c... I also want to know that java is capable enough to capture network traffic as efficient as c?? 

  Hoping for some help from you people. Thanks
