I'm preparing a pre-configured Eclipse with a project on a memory stick. The
idea is setting everything up, so the (other) users of the memory stick can
continue where I left. This way, nothing needs to be set up by them.
ECF is one of the things my users should utilize, including chat and shared
editor, so I'm testing it using my own XMPP user. I notice that Eclipse
remembers my XMPP user and password across sessions, and since both Eclipse and
the workspace is on the memory stick, I fear that they (user name and password)
will stick (pun intended), too.
So the question is, where is the password stored and how can I clear it. I found
a reference to the user name in the workspace' metadata
(.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.ecf.provider.xmpp.ui\dialog_ settings.xml) but
couldn't find the password. I suppose it should be stored in a secure manner,
but couldn't find out how or where.
