Re: [dsdp-tm-dev] Password persistence extension point

Kushal --

Are we really talking about passwords here or userids? These days, what
systems are case insensitive for passwords?

Hi folks,

I've had a discussion with the developer here regarding the password
persistence extension point. It has been deemed to be unnecessary and can
be consolidated with the systemsTypes extension point. The extension point
is used to allow password management for that system type through the RSE
Passwords preference page. It only allows one attribute to specify whether
passwords for the system type are case sensitive or not. There is no need
for it to be a separate extension point.

My proposal is to add two new optional boolean properties to the <property>
markup for the org.eclipse.rse.ui.systemTypes extension point. These are
"passwordManagement" to specify whether passwords for the system type can
be managed and "passwordCaseSensitive" to indicate whether passwords for
the system type are case sensitive or not. Both will default to true for
the system type if the property does not exist.

This ensures equivalent function with what we currently have. An example is
given below:

<extension point="org.eclipse.rse.ui.systemTypes">

      <systemType id="com.acme.systemtype.Example" name="Example"

            <property name="passwordManagement" value="true"/>

            <property name="passwordCaseSensitive" value="false"/>



Please vote on this proposal.
