We have come up with a couple of different plug-ins so that we can launch and login to single as well multiple applications (be it desktop based or URL based). We have managed to make the plug-ins work with the base version of 2.14. And as suggested by Dominik in this forum thread (https://sourceforge.net/projects/keepass/forums/forum/329220/topic/5134551), we would like to make these suggestions and if you want we can provide you with the plug-in codes.
But we also wanted to make the tool a bit more considerate when matching the window titles while "global auto-typing". Since the tool blindly relies on the window title, there are far too many conflict resolution pop-up windows. So here's our approach for this conundrum. We check for the URL or location of the application into which we are trying to login to. If we can find a match in the DB for this then we extract the credentials out of that relevant entry. If not, then it checks the window title and in case of a conflict of course we are prompted with the choice window. However, so far we havent been able to come up with a plug-in for this and have had to go for a code base change. So, once again, Dominik, if you want, then we can send you the code base, so that you can probably integrate them with your next release.

    Like I said before, feel free to send me your proposed changes, I'll happily evaluate and integrate them, if I like them. Please send modified files or patches always relative to the current KeePass version (2.19 at this time).

    For checking URLs, you might be interested in the 'WebAutoType' plugin. This plugin matches entries by comparing the browser URL with the entry URLs.
