    Default Sftp thread for multiple site

    I'm new to multithreading. I want to develop code that will read login information from a file (have that part) and use it to Sftp files using the information. The Sftp part is working. In some case I have 60+ sites to sftp files from. It takes 57 secs when this is done in C++. I didn't write the code, so I don't understand it. I want to do them same in Java, but don't know how. My thought is I will develop an SftpThread that will do the work. My main will read the login info into a Map then loop through the map creating a thread for each login entry. Does this sound reasonable? Not sure if I should use "extends Thread" or "implements Runnable". And how many threads are too many? Any advice and/or guidance will be much appreciated. Currently, this is done sequentially and taking over 30 mins to complete. Of course this is unacceptable.

    My advice is to write your post on more then one line so we do not get eye-ache while reading it.
    After that I would like a minor [actually almost major] clarification, do you mean FTPS (Explicity secure FTP)
    or SFTP (SSH [like in the Unix-like-world] file transfer protocol)?
    Ex animo! Hibernate
