Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2216) Use JLine API to get password interactivly when using shutdown
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2006 05:51:16 GMT

Jason Dillon commented on GERONIMO-2216:
----------------------------------------

Yup, there is probably some env where this won't work... but JLine can detect that and will
revert to basically the same behavior as we had before... I clued them into out brute force
method.

But, 99% of the time it will work... and in reality its more like 99.99% of the time, since
almost everyone is on Linux, Windows or Mac OS X (or some other Unix).

> Sometimes when interactively entering a password for shutdown, if the password is typed
too fast, some of the chars are visible for a brief period.
> JLine provides the ability to mask the input as it is read (or omit it all together):
