> By using Configuration.getPassword the credential provider API can be used to provide
an alternative to storing the ssl and ldap bind passwords in clear text within the configuration
files.
> getPassword will enable us to not sure clear text passwords when required and provide
backward compatibility for when it is not necessary and existing deployments.
