Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-478) Deployer must not echo password when prompting

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
We site says that jline is lgpl but
seems to indicate that it has recently relicensed as BSD.
