Authentication is done via a normal jboss login module. That is the first step. Did you get that working? The moment you do, we'd be glad if you document that on the wiki. I'll help you (and myself) find out the next steps after that, since it is something I want to.
I'm interested in this topic, please let me know if I can help.
I'll keep you posted
thanks for the quick answer! So we are talking about this:
It seems that I started at the wrong point :-( I'll keep you informed about my progress :-)
Yes, but no you did not start at the wrong point. You can have the authenication/authorisation (currently participant, administrator and manager) and roles/memberships at the processlevel (up to you) separated. I just assumed you would also want the users to login against the ldap server.
btw, only the 3.2 branche (just in alpha) uses authentication and authorization on the container. In 3.1 it is still 'custom'. The roles/memberships do not differ much between 3.1/3.2
