      Add the following note to 12.8 db:login:

      Note: For security reasons, the <db:login> elements does not have an attribute to store a password that may be required to establish a connection.

      Add the following note to 12.8 db:login: Note: For security reasons, the <db:login> elements does not have an attribute to store a password that may be required to establish a connection.

      Description

      <db:login> has a db:user-name and a db:is-password-required attribute, but no db:password attribute.

      Probably this is for security reasons (although one might argue that a db:password is useful in some cases, and that it is up to user to decide whether or not to use this attribute)

      I assume the user will be prompted when a password is required
