Re: [equinox-dev] [sec] JAAS framework dependency on Eclipse


The authentication code currently relies on extension points to contribute the JAAS artifacts, so I don't believe it will currently work in a pure OSGi environment.

Nothing is currently planned in this direction - primarily because no one has asked yet... Requirements (via bugzilla) and contributions are both welcome :)
