Hi,

We are attempting to add authentication while using the generic server. To
do so a IConnectContext must be passed in with the connect request. In our
case we will pass in an token, so no callbacks are necessary.

In line 127 of org.eclipse.ecf.provider.generic.ClientSOContainer I see a
statement:
Object connectData = createConnectData(remote, callbacks, null);

The null is th eplace where data must be put for verification on the server.

Is it the intention to override the createConnectData method for adding the
authentication? Otherwise I don't see a possibility to get the token (or
callback results) to the server.

Kind regards,

Jaap

Yes this was the original intention (that a subclass would determine the
expected type/contents of authentication data...since the subclass also
is responsible for the type of transport).

Admittedly it's not a very good approach as it should be possible to
set/change this createConnectData function at runtime. I've filed this
bug for this change in design:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=150398

Thanks,

Scott
