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


In the bug:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=202156

Chris rightly points out that I may have been heavy-handed with 'pure' ;)

Certainly the registry can be used in other environments.. Though I've never tried it, the framework may very well work if you simply include the registry. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help get your environment up and running.
