    Handling more complex properties in a ManagedComponent

    Mark Spritzler Apprentice

      So currently there are just Simple ManagedProperty(s) in a ManagedComponent. So for DataSource, properties like jndi-name, and connection-url can easily be handled. However, support for a property like connection properties cannot be handled. Since there can be 0-many connection properties defined in a DataSource, the ManageProperty object might need to have more than one value, and is not currently supported.

      As an Example, in the Oracle XA datasource in the docs dir has three <xa-datasource-property> tags. the name, attribute is what distinguishes the property. <connection-property> is another tag example.

      <xa-datasource-property name="URL">jdbc:oracle:oci8:@tc</xa-datasource-property>
      <xa-datasource-property name="User">scott</xa-datasource-property>
      <xa-datasource-property name="Password">tiger</xa-datasource-property>
      


      Some other ManagedComponents and Templates might have other similar type of properties. Some might require just a List of Properties, whereas some might require a Map of Properties.

      So a LoginModule can have many module-options, So if there was a Map for the module-options, the key being the name attribute value, and the value in the Map is the value of that module-option.

      An example of a List property might be the URIList of the VFSDeploymentScanner.

      Can this change be made?
