|Re: [p2-dev] Authority component in a p2 repository URI|
We don't currently support specifying the password in the URL. From what I've read, from a security perspective it's pretty iffy...so we just didn't go to the effort to support it.
It is possible, however, to specify a password (e.g. for basic authentication) via the IConnectContext (rather than embedded in the URI/URL).
ECF allows the use of any new protocol/URI scheme...so you could add/create your own provider that parsed the URI in any manner desired (and possibly just used/reuse an existing provider). e.g. ianbull:http://irbull:password@localhost/repository.
