I'm trying to wrap up some Upsert functionality into a simple application which will execute the Apex Data Loader to push that data to Salesforce.
I can get this working through the GUI version of the Data Loader as that just requires me to enter my username & human-readable-password.
However when I move to the commandline version, it requires an API token which most end users won't easily know/have access to.
Is there a way to generate this token automatically, based on their Human Readable password. If not, why is there this discrepency between the login mechanism from the GUI tool vs. the commandline tool.
