I've heard a rumor :) that post-Europa there will be some JAAS
integration bundles being contributed to Equinox for security
enhancements (i.e. supporting platform-level authentication...hope,
Is there any way to find out/begin review/start contributing
ideas/requirements/enhancements for this work for those of us not
Equinox committers (i.e. other community members)?
Just by way of example, for some time, ECF uses/extends the Principal
interface for it's concept of 'IDs' (user ID, process ID, service ID,
etc). Iff the JAAS integration work provides services and/or extension
points to allow other plugins (ours and those built upon ours) to
contribute Principals and Credentials to authenticated Subjects upon
successful authentication, we would be most happy :).
