      Description

      By using Configuration.getPassword the credential provider API can be used to provide an alternative to storing the ssl and ldap bind passwords in clear text within the configuration files.

      getPassword will enable us to not sure clear text passwords when required and provide backward compatibility for when it is not necessary and existing deployments.
