Kai Zheng commented on DIRSERVER-1889:
--------------------------------------

Thank you, Emmanuel. 
Seems the process is a little different from other projects, like Hadoop. It's great for me
work with ApacheDS codes coming up this patch. A pleasure.

> As discussed in the developers list, it’s good to provide credentials cache support
for ApacheDS Kerberos. Currently this functionality isn’t available, as confirmed by Kiran.
It’s needed to implement Kerberos client tools like kinit to be complete for the ApacheDS
Kerberos solution in future. And also, in Kerberos automation testing systems utilizing the
built-in KDC in ApacheDS, to allow test of user login via kinit or ticket cache, such facility
is also needed to store TGT in a FCC compatible cache, and from the cache the TGT can be loaded
by thirdparty tools and libraries. Ref. HADOOP-9893. This issue will define the API and provide
implementation for credentials cache as client library. Such library can be utilized to implement
kinit like tools in future.
