    Sharing JAAS context with existing application

    Alexander Sparkowsky Newbie

      Hi,

      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.

      web.xml

       <security-constraint>
      ...
       </security-constraint>
       <login-config>
       <auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
       <realm-name>myDomain</realm-name>
       <form-login-config>
       <form-login-page>/login.seam</form-login-page>
       <form-error-page>/loginError.seam</form-error-page>
       </form-login-config>
       </login-config>
      


      components.xml
       <security:identity authenticate-method="#{authenticator.authenticate}"
       jaas-config-name="myDomain"
       remember-me="true" />
      


      jboss.xml
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
      <jboss>
       <security-domain>java:/jaas/myDomain</security-domain>
      </jboss>
      


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

      Can anyone clarify this?

      Thanks,
      Alex
