Random Errors with data authentication system
There are many random errors occurring with the data search/authentication system. This is a tracking bug for these issues. Please set this bug as a blocker to any bug associated with these problems.

The cancel button does not cancel after the 2nd authentication. You may have one successful search, but if you restart kepler then try to search/authenticate again, it usually fails with or without an error. Sometimes the "getEndpoint - ENDPOINT attr is null." message scrolls uncontrollably down the console, locking up kepler altogether. Sometimes no error messages are displayed until you quit or kill kepler, when a slew of Axis errors magically appear on the console. Most errors are pointing to the class EcoGridServicesController.

changed the ldap authentication gui to get away from static method calls (in favor of singleton getInstance calls that can be synchronized to prevent concurrent threads from battling it out with GUIs and authentication requests).
cvs log message:
"change the LDAP login gui to use a singleton patter rather than a static
method pattern so that displaying the login dialogue can be a synchronized
process (in cases when requests for authentication are happening in concurrent
threads as with the ecogrid searches and retrievals)."
please try this out in your workspace. I've done multiple authenticated searches and also tried to upload to the repository. logging out works as it did before (Tools->Ecogrid Authentication...)
