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

That answers my other question as well. Thanks.

I'm going to file a bug right now and will contribute code if I can come

I wonder whether the OSGi specification has already hooks available to
put something like framework wide authentication.

Thanks again and regards

Arthur
