My client program below

            log.info("Connecting to server " + host);
            // set transfer buffer size

            // transfer buffer is emptied
            log.info("Setting transfer buffer size to 512 bytes");

            // use binary so file sizes can be compared precisely

            log.info("Change directory to " + mibsdir+"/"+brno);

            // Shut down client
            log.info("Quitting client");

            log.info("SFTP complete");

Please help why this happens. I created new keys and able to SFTP from SSH without password being prompted. Only through program the issue arises. Please help asap.
