Description gliesian 2010-02-14 12:49:39 UTC
The Create Java DB Database (invoked from right clicking the Java DB node and Create Database..) does *not* hide the new password with asterisks.

So, if you type in 'password', you see 'password' and not '********'.

The dialog should let you enter it twice (hidden), if in case there is user error.

Comment 1 sunbiz 2010-03-23 22:05:20 UTC
I agree with the reporter that we should use a password field instead of normal textfield for create database dialog.

Looks like a NetFIX[1] participant can take on. Does Jiri Rechtacek agree?

Comment 2 Jiri Rechtacek 2010-03-24 09:42:14 UTC
I do agree. Please, fix it. Thank you
