    Configurations sample request

    valia981 Newbie

      Hi all!

      I am new to XACML, so please be patient with me, forgive my errors (giving me an hint for correcting my behavior ).

      It will be very helpful to have some clear links to how to configure a web container (in my caseJBoss AS 7.1 final)  to use XACML.


      When I start jboss, log informations are similar





        JBoss Bootstrap Environment



      16:23:56,052 INFO  [org.jboss.as.naming] JBAS011800: Activating Naming Subsystem

      16:23:57,171 INFO  [org.jboss.as.naming] (MSC service thread 1-3) JBAS011802: Starting Naming Service



      so picketbox is used, but I don't find clear documentation about configuring it when used as module in JBoss AS 7.1.

      I've seen something in this area (wiki) and something in Anil's blog, but I have to admit that for a beginner those resource are really unclear.
      My question is: where do I put configurations informations? Where policy must be written?

      I've seen some xml configuration samples (here for example http://docs.jboss.org/jbosssecurity/docs/jbossxacml/html/ch04.html ) , and I can't figure out how to proceed to run the sample.


      If I am define a policy, in my logic this policy must be used by my appserver (jboss7.1) to authenticate. How can I tell to JBoss AS 7.1 that it must use that policy?


      I spent two days trying to understand how to configure JBoss AS 7.1, I can't find a solution and this is very frustrating. Maybe my start point is wrong, any advice?

      Thanks in advance
