JHashCode Description

JHash is a Java-based application that helps you find out file checksums by providing you with a user-friendly interface and intuitive options that do not require previous experience with such apps.

No installation required

As long as you have Java on your computer, there is no need to install anything else. All you have to do is click the JAR file to launch the program. This means that you also have the option to save JHash to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to use it on any computer running Java.

An important aspect worth taking into account is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not receive new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk without your consent, leaving it clean after removal.

Clear-cut interface and options

The GUI is user-friendly, represented by a regular window that shows all available options. You can get started by selecting the preferred hash type (MD2, MD5, SHA1, SAH256, SHA384, SHA512), after which you can point out the file or directory with files you want to process, and click a button to generate the hashes.

Export and compare hashes

As you may have suspected by now, batch processing is possible, since you can work with directories filled with files. The results list contains the full path and hash for each file, and you can export information for closer examination. The bad the tool does not show the hash algorithm used as well.

In addition, you can compare a hash with the one of another file, in order to find out whether the two are identical or not. There are no other notable options available here.

Evaluation and conclusion

Hashes are swiftly calculated while JHash remains light on system resources. It did not hang, crash or pop up error messages during our evaluation. In a nutshell, JHash provides a very simple method to calculating and comparing hashes, and its intuitive interface and options can be figured out by anyone with ease.
