Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-482) Support XOAUTH
Date Sun, 07 Oct 2012 23:56:03 GMT


Houman Atashbar commented on NET-482:

Hi Sebb, thanks for your quick reply.
I haven't looked at the requirements for other servers, but for Google itself it is different
between 1.0a and 2 versions (add to this 2-legged OAuth which doesn't require a token). This
is while it doesn't matter for commons-net since it uses the XOAUTH string the same way no
matter what the protocol is. So, I think it would be nice if there was such a helper but I
would do it conceptually separate to the authentication method itself.
I have no strong opinion on either plain or Base64, or even passing a map of key values used
to create this string. If it is more consistent to accept a plain text, so be it.
