Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: 0.9.0
Fix Version/s: None
Operating System: All
The login panel should allow to customize connection parameters.
For instance , if you want to allow an application to login on a remote
application without knowing the list of remote applications before. The server
list should be editable and should be displayed even if the server list is empty.
If you want to help the user to enter the connection parameters ( i.e for a jdbc
connection ) , you can help him by first letting him to chose the drivers , then
the url of the db and then the user and password. Today it's not possible with
the login panel , even by extending it.
Small remark ( and it's only a personal feeling ) , the server list when it's
used, should be displayed before the login and password field.
The loginService could also be extended to support that. Instead of parameters
in the authenticate methods we should have a map of parameters which is
containing login info and the connection info.
