Infocenter Authentication [message #624490] Fri, 03 September 2010 04:30 Go to next message

Hi,
my Infocenter is up and running, also I'm only able to connect to my Infocenter by logging in with my external Browser.

When I connect to the infocenter with my Eclipse RCP I can't access the help. I want the Eclipse RCP to ask the user for login like the external webbrowser or another possibility to automatically transfer the username and password. SSL is not necessary.

I've searched a bit and found this http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/platform-help-home/ infocenter_secure_access.html?view=co but these extension points do not exist (heard tomcat isn't used internal anymore, instead jetty?) and also some bug-entries which didn't help me.

Is it possible without rewriting everything?

Thanks in advance

I have updated my IDE to Helios and since the new update it can connect to my hostet infocenter.

Now the question is, which plugin of my rcp do I have to update to get the same functionality? (Login Dialog on Infocenter connect / SSL connection) I can't update everything because it's a rather huge project.

Thanks in advance

Hi Matthias,

just a wild guess:
Looks like the functionality you are looking for went to
org.eclipse.equinox.security
Perhaps the extension points provided by this plugin can be helpful.
Especially org.eclipse.equinox.security.loginConfigurationProvider and
org.eclipse.equinox.security.loginModule look promising to me.
Hope that helps a bit.

Regards,

Holger

Thanks for your help Holger!
It's not the right plugin but this doesn't matter anymore because when I update some plugins I need to update a lot more because of the dependencies.
I will suggest to move the targetPlattform to Helios but for now it seems that I cannot do more.

Regards,
Matthias
