I've a problem... We have a authentification portal external from our jboss portal. This authentification portal put a cookie with the id of the user wich is connected on the portal.
I want to how can I get this cookie to authenticate user on jboss portal. I've seen loginModule, but, it's not that I need because in our case, we haven't to manage authentication from jboss. I've seen valve, but it's not that I need because in authenticate mÃ©thode, we must past "username" but if we haven't tell where is the username to use (in the cookie), the valve will doesn't work.
So, I'm lost, I just want to disconnect the login module from jboss and tell to jboss "the username to use is ...."... but where ?
we're using :
jboss 4.2.2 GA
jboss portal 2.6.4
