Thanks Jaikiran, that worked! At least it worked in the sense that JBoss now recognizes I'm telling it to use a valve. Now the problem is:
09:55:25,827 ERROR [org.jboss.as.web.deployment.JBossContextConfig] (MSC service thread 1-1) Error instantiating contain
er component: org.jboss.web.tomcat.security.ExtendedFormAuthenticator: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jboss.web.t
omcat.security.ExtendedFormAuthenticator from [Module "deployment.xxx.ear.xxxxxxx.war:main" from Service Modu
I used that isocra jar searcher tool, and determined that JBoss no longer has the ExtendedFormAuthenticator class. Has it been renamed, or replaced by something?
Thanks Marcus! If you need a volunteer to test it, ping on me.
The ExtendendFormAuthenticator has been ported to AS7. You can test it by checking out the latest version for github.
to jboss-web.xml to use it.
