Subject Re: XML:DB user authentification
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2006 12:22:04 GMT

I have solved my problem.
The authentication is coupled to the collection and not to the database
connection as I had assumed. So one can get a collection with
getCollection(String collection, String username, String password) and
then add resources to it, ...
Maybe this can find its way into the XML:DB pseudo protocol as well?

Thanks anyway,
