Subject [jira] Created: (FELIX-651) Access to password protected OBR
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2008 18:21:31 GMT
Access to password protected OBR

                 Key: FELIX-651
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-651
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Bundle Repository (OBR)
            Reporter: Remco Poortinga - van Wijnen
            Priority: Trivial

For a project I would like to configure a 'private' OBR (somewhat against the federated idea
of OBR I guess, but anyway). In other words: username/password protected access. Https OBR
are possible, but I have no idea if there is an 'official' way (from Felix' point of view)
for specifying credentials for the specified OBR URLs.

Just to see whether it would work I created a test version where username/password can be
specified in a RFC1738 compliant way, e.g. https://user:password@server:port/rest and added
an Authenticator to the bundlerepository bundle, which gets the username/password from the
URL if it is set (see http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/net/URL.html#getUserInfo()).

This seems to work OK; would this be interesting for others as well?
