I would like to request the addition
of API to support the following two bugs. In both cases the projects already
exist in the repository so this request is to add them to the build.
Platform Level Proxy Support - https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=154100
This feature has been requested by WTP
and other clients in order to reduce the number of proxy preference pages
(there were 3 in Callisto). For this feature we have created two new projects:
org.eclipse.net.core and org.eclipse.net.ui. The Core plug-in consists
of API to access and modify proxy settings for HTTP, HTTPS and SOCKS proxies.
There is also API for setting the non-proxied hosts lists and API for allowing
clients to retrieve proxy data by host. The UI plug-in has API for setting
the default Java Authenticator
Separate JSch preference pages from
CVS - https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=170883
This feature was requested by DSDP since
they use JSch for SSH2 connections. We would like to add two new projects:
org.eclipse.jsch.core and org.eclipse.jsch.ui. The Core plug-in consists
of API to create a JSch Session that uses the proper prefereces. The UI
plug-in consists of API that provides basic password prompting
- The new plug-ins push down Proxy and SSH2 preferences so that clients
do not need their own preference pages which leads to a better user experience.
