Thanks a lot Shawn for your continuous suggestions on code style, api's used and the coding
standards.

> To my knowledge, it is not possible to run a Geronimo command (e.g. deploy.sh deploy
or gsh geronimo/stop-server) to a server with a secure JMX Connector (running SSL, without
specifying the following Java system properties on the command line:
>    javax.net.ssl.keyStore and javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword
> For example:
> {code}
> export GERONIMO_HOME=~/target/geronimo-jetty6-javaee5-2.2-SNAPSHOT
> export JAVA_OPTS="-Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=$GERONIMO_HOME/var/security/keystores/geronimo-default
-Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=secret -Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=$GERONIMO_HOME/var/security/keystores/geronimo-default
-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword=secret"
> $GERONIMO_HOME/bin/deploy.sh -u system -p manager --secure list-modules --stopped
> {code}
> javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword causes a problem, since this means the keyStorePassword
is available, in-the-clear, to someone inspecting executing processes. For example while a
deploy command was active, someone could run 'ps auxww | grep deployer.jar' and discover the
keyStorePassword for the KeyStore.
> Geronimo should provide a mechanism, whereby users can specify the keyStorePassword without
making that secret available to anyone inspecting processes running on the current system.
Ideally, the password could be encrypted/obfuscated within a file (just as passwords can be
encrypted/obfuscated in var/config/config.xml).
