Comments

  • 1. When exact match of host, port, user name and password is
    found, use the connection.
    2. If exact match of host and port is found which has no
    credential, look for credential matching the user name
    and password. If matching credential is found, then assigned
    it to the connection. Otherwsie, create a new credential
    and assign to the connection.
    3. If no matching connection is found, then create connection.
    Look for credential matching the user name and password. If
    found, then assigned the credential to the newly created
    connection. Otherwise, create a new credential and assign.
