i started developing a seam application, which is completely new to me. for some time now i've been reading the tutorials and posts and i got confused from how i should manage the users in my application.
i found out about the Identity/RuleBasedIdentity component and how to extend it if necessary, and also saw examples of using a User entity bean. my question is: what is is connection, if any, between the Identity component and the User entity bean?
from what i understand, the Identity component is responsible for the authentication part while the entity bean holds the user data and persist it if needed (correct me if i'm wrong). if this is the case, are these two components bound in any way?
