    Sharing JAAS context with existing application

    Alexander Sparkowsky Newbie


      I'm trying to combine seam with an existing J2EE (pre Version 5) application in a JBoss 4.0.5.GA with EJB3 profile. An independent Seam application runs fine on this server.

      The application is running in an own ear containing a lot of 2.1 Beans. The standard database JAAS login module is used for authentication.

      If setup a new seam project containing a single SessionBean (Action) and I've added a reference to my existing JAAS domain which is configured separatly in almost every place ;)

      First of all as soos as I define the security domain I cannot access my bean method because an authentication is expected. However I allways get an exception that "user.properties" is missing what shows me that my domain that is using a database login is ignored.



       <security:identity authenticate-method="#{authenticator.authenticate}"
       remember-me="true" />

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

      What I didn't understand is the role of teh "loader-repository" (e.g. in jboss-app.xml)

      Can anyone clarify this?
