Subject Re: [Configuration]: Persisting property values securely
Date Thu, 10 May 2007 20:16:59 GMT


I was planning to extend PropertiesConfiguration by adding setPropertySecure()
and getPropertySecure() with an option of specifying the Base64 encoder.
Could I contribute this back to commons?

Thanks
