Yeah, this is a good idea. We should be able to do this before the release.
I just committed the change to trunk and marked the issue as resolved. (Feel free to reopen if there is an issue.)
Thanks again for the patch, John!
just noticed something. a while ago I made some changes that were supposed to be reflected in how you did auth, where it would fail if there were no creds passed in via http. these appear to have never made it in. I thought I sent a patch, do you recall?
Hmm... I don't recall. I checked my mail and the open issues, but may have missed it. Or might this this thread what you're thinking of: http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=161102
looks like someone added the old dependency to the jpa connector
Sorry. I think I keep fixing and breaking that in alternate commits. I'm checking in a final fix to the POM in the next few minutes.
