PicketBox in JBoss AS 5.1

Anil Saldhana Master

Sergey asked:



Hi Anil

We're seeing JBossWS/CXF tests relying on PicketBox failing in JBoss 5.1 [1], due to one of
PicketBox classes missing (please see the raw console output).

I thought, according to [2], that PicketBox dependencies are available there. I've downloaded
JBossAS 5.1 but I could not find picketbox-bare.jar. Can you please explain, is PicketBox actually
supported in JBoss 5.0 ?

thanks, Sergey

    PicketBox libraries are not included in AS 5.x.  Only the security-spi.jar and jbosssx.jar come shipped.  There is no picketbox.jar


    So you have two options:

    1. Bring in the PicketBox dependencies to replace the 2 jars in AS 5.1
    2. Have an attribute called securityManagement (that will inject an ISecurityManagement instance via the MC).  From the ISecurityManagement interface, you can get hold of the AuthenticationManager, AuthorizationManager etc interfaces


    Remember, in JBAS, you do not need to explicitly load any configuration. You can always rely on the security domain configuration provided by the AS.
