Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-478) Deployer must not echo password when prompting
Date Wed, 08 Dec 2004 17:43:14 GMT
     [ http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-478?page=comments#action_56397 ]
     
Hiram Chirino commented on GERONIMO-478:
----------------------------------------

The password hiding strategy that the patch uses is not very optimal since it is continously
updating the screen to overwrite the typed password.  Over a slow ssh connection this "feature"
might not be so good.

Another approach might be to used something like http://jline.sourceforge.net/#reading_password
We site says that jline is lgpl but http://web1.2020media.com/j/jez/javanicuscom/blog2/items/162-index.html
seems to indicate that it has recently relicensed as BSD.

> When no password is specified on the command line the deployer prompts the user for one.
> When this is being entered it is echoed onto the screen.
> On a windows machine the value entered is also displayed if up-arrow is pressed when
being prompted.
