Re: Getting PAM auth to work with JDBC


I completed the MariaDB Connector/J implementation a bit more and it now responds to mysql_clear_password (if pam_use_cleartext_plugin was set)
and it responds with a password the dialog plugin is requested (CONJ-164).


https://github.com/grooverdan/mariadb-connector-j/tree/CONJ-164 for a branch to try out for yourself.

Feedback welcome (on CONJ-164) especially on how to implement a callback for the dialog plugin. Code contributions on a GUI also welcome.
