Subject [SASL] SASL configuration, part 3 (Kerberos)
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 21:38:41 GMT
Hi, Directory developers,

Since we seem to have consensus about making a bean for
LdapConfiguration, I'd like to do the same for Kerberos, in the SASL
branch.  We actually already have a KerberosConfiguration class, it
just was never implemented for Spring XML config as a bean.  Since I'm
working on SASL/GSSAPI, which uses LDAP and Kerberos, I'd like to get
both Kerberos and LDAP configuring the same way.  Then when we do a
1.5.1 release with SASL it will be part of a cohesive effort to make a
combined LDAP+Kerberos server easy to run.

There's some risk here of feature creep in the SASL branch, but this
is easy work and, again, I think it's part of a solid SASL initiative.

I know we're down to the minor detail of whether to make the beans
subordinate to the ServerStartupConfig or not, and whatever we decide
there I'll do with the Kerberos bean.
