I had a look at the Configuration API… Your branch wasn't compiling, and after fixing
that I got into an endless loop in a getDelegate call, so I think you forgot to check in
something. Anyway; you said to have problems saving the configuration. I added a simple
test as an example of how to do that. It creates the file and loads from it correctly.
Besides that a few remarks:
1) Not sure if XML is the best format, why not just use property files? They are more
aren't these things better of being nested in xml than long keys in properties ?
4) Still not sure what to do with passwords. Encrypting would be
nice, but that needs to be a two way encrypt with a private key. Where to store the
private key… I don't know. Maybe we can simply store plain passwords for now and warn
the user about this. How do they solve this in JBoss Tools for example?
Eclipse provides a secure storage API which is where we store things like passwords
