[ecf-dev] New topic in forum Eclipse Communications Framework (ECF), called Unable to pass credentials through URL to an HTTP Server, by Victor Roldan Betancort

Hello all,

some time ago we started using our own P2 Sites to distribute our binaries, and thats behind a artifact management system called Artifactory. We found P2 had problems on resolving HTTP URLs containg credentials. You may find more information on the original post:

http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/556492/

So we concluded the HttpClient implementation of ECF does not support fetching credentials from the URL and passing it to the server.

The issue found at:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=307477

fixed the correct parsing of the http://<user>:<pass>@host:port format. But it did not actually implement passing these credentials to the server.

My question here is: is there any reason this feature is not implemented (for example, security reasons, being a non-standard feature...). In case there is no reason, would a contribution be accepted?

Cheers,
VÃctor.
