    SEAM Authentication

    Sascha Effert Newbie

      Hello,


      I am using SEAM 2.0.1 inside a JBoss 4.2.2. Here I created a CRUD out of an existing database using seam generate-entities (as described in chapter 2.5 of the tutorial). Using this I get a couple of Webpages. Some of this pages are only for viewing data, others are for editing them (*Edit.xhtml). I can use any of the pages without login in but the pages to Edit data.


      Now I want to change this behaviour, so that a user must be logged in to use any of the pages. To understand what is happening I first tried to configure thr application in a way, that it is no more necessary to log in to edit pages. But I really can not find out why the application asks me to log in before editing anything. Neither I can see anything in the pages.xml nor in the web.xml nor in the security.drl nor in any of the actions that let me understand why SEAM asks me to login before editing anything. I read chapter 13 (Security) of the tutorial very carefully but I do not find any of the way to mark the *.xhtml files as restricted. Here are some files as I found them:
