Description Weston M. Price 2011-09-08 17:41:04 UTC
Use of the guest/guest user-name/password combination should be removed from the JCA adapter as it is no longer favored for default security requirements. In it's place, we are using the following connection URL:


Similarly, the ra.xml file included the properties 'DefaultUserName, DefaultPassword' these should be renamed to UserName, Password to avoid confusion that we do indeed accept a default user name and password as this is no longer correct.

Comment 1 Andrew Stitcher 2011-09-08 18:05:39 UTC
User and password are optional fields in the url, so the replacement can be somewhat simpler:


Note that the ' are incorrect in the options in the previous comment.

Comment 2 Andrew Stitcher 2011-09-08 18:10:15 UTC
Sorry, thinking more I'm not sure whether the sasl_mechs option attaches to the url as a whole or the specific tcp address so it might be:


But I think you would need to escape the ' in the latter case.

Comment 3 Weston M. Price 2011-09-08 18:10:50 UTC

Updated URL as per comment above.

Comment 4 Andrew Stitcher 2011-09-22 13:30:55 UTC
This has been fixed in package qpid-java-jca-0.10-10

The configuration
  <mbean code="org.jboss.resource.deployment.AdminObject"

The connection URL should read:
