    Seam Authentication using eID token

    Frank Cornelis Apprentice

      I'm using my eID card to login to JBoss Seam. So we have some pages protected via pages.xml

      <page view-id="/admin/admin.xhtml">

      And via

      <exception class="org.jboss.seam.security.NotLoggedInException">
          <redirect view-id="/login.xhtml">
              <message>You must be logged in to perform this action</message>

      we can reach the login page. This login page has some eID Applet and via a Servlet I eventually push the credentials to the JBoss Seam framework:

      HttpSession httpSession = httpServletRequest.getSession();
      Credentials credentials = (Credentials) httpSession.getAttribute("org.jboss.seam.security.credentials");

      To let JBoss Seam do its job I have configured in components.xml the following:

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

      Where my authenticator is a simple Seam component.

      The problem I have now is that I cannot make a distinction between a first login attempt and the following attempts. So I would like to have on the login.xhtml page something like:

      Login failed. Please try again.

      after a failed login. How do I do that?

      I already tried something with


      but it doesn't get called.
