Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-1312) Don't cache credentials in client-side Connector
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2013 23:57:16 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-1312:

             Summary: Don't cache credentials in client-side Connector
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1312
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: client
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.6.0

AuthenticationToken objects are Destroyable. However, this cannot be exercised properly in
the client code, because the Connector immediately serializes the credentials and stores them
as long as the Connector lives.

It should be possible to destroy a token after creating a Connector, and thereby forcing any
further RPC calls initiated by that Connector to fail to authenticate. This means that serialization
on the client side to a TCredentials object needs to occur just before the RPC call.
