Hi Mark,

When ManifoldCF initially creates a connection, it creates it with an empty
ConfigParams() object.  In the UI, that means that if you see *no*
parameter of the kind you are looking for, you should treat it as if it is
whatever default value you choose.

You are expected to pass the modified data from your ConfigParams object
around in HTML form data.  You "scatter" the data using the
outputConfigurationBody() method, and the processConfigurationPost() method
will be called to collect the data (possibly changed) back into a
ConfigParams object again.  Note that at the time the
processConfigurationPost() method is called, whatever was last saved for
the connection's configuration information initially populates the
ConfigParams object passed  to the post method, so you will want to
overwrite those.

Hope this helps.
