Deprecated. The preferred way to represent generic credential information
is via the
org.ietf.jgss.GSSCredential interface in
J2SE Version 1.4, which provides similar functionality.
public interface GenericCredential
defines a security mechanism independent interface for accessing
security credential of a resource principal.
GenericCredential interface provides a Java
wrapper over an underlying mechanism specific representation of
a security credential. For example, the
interface can be used to wrap Kerberos credentials.
The connector architecture does not define any standard format
and requirements for security mechanism specific credentials. For
example, a security credential wrapped by a GenericCredential
interface can have a native representation specific to an operating
The GenericCredential interface enables a resource adapter to
extract information about a security credential. The resource adapter
can then manage EIS sign-on for a resource principal by either:
- using the credentials in an EIS specific manner if the underlying
EIS supports the security mechanism type represented by the
GenericCredential instance, or,
- using GSS-API if the resource adapter and underlying EIS
instance support GSS-API.

- Returns the name of the resource principal associated

- Name of the principal
- Returns the mechanism type for the GenericCredential instance.
The mechanism type definition for GenericCredential should be
consistent with the Object Identifier (OID) based representation
specified in the GSS specification. In the GenericCredential
interface, the mechanism type is returned as a stringified
representation of the OID specification.

- Gets security data for a specific security mechanism represented
by the GenericCredential. An example is authentication data required
for establishing a secure association with an EIS instance on
behalf of the associated resource principal.
The getCredentialData method returns the credential
representation as an array of bytes. Note that the connector
architecture does not define any standard format for the returned
