#1389 closed defect (fixed)

Lots of connections while creating a new server profile

Reported by: datenimperator Owned by: merlimat
Priority: normal Component: EclipseTracPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


The current "New server" wizard will try to connect to the given URL after each key pressed, regardless if that's reasonable or not. This leads to at least one problem:

After entering the server name and url, the wizard will try to connect once for every character that I enter in "username" and "password". After typing in my correct username, that means 7 unsuccessful tries with a wrong password if my password happens to be 8 characters long. This might lead to a temporary or permanent lock of my user account. (in fact, for me it did)

Suggested behavior: Add an extra button "Validate" or so, that will try to connect with the given credentials. It might even be possible that somebody wants to enter data that's not yet able to connect properly, so don't let the wizard stand in the way.
