I haven’t tried Eclipse integration, but I’m using basex from Oxygen configured 
as in:


You can then use BaseX in a transformation scenario. 
But the XQuery debugger is still restricted to Saxon only. 

Re: security and authentication: 

Have you looked at the sample DBA app or RESTXQ permissions:

If you want to add some external authentication, you can run the basex war file 
under tomcat.
( And/or proxy thru Apache/nginx. )
