    Authentication Problem

    rkbeach Newbie

      Server Version: JBoss 3.2.5

      I am using the jbossweb-tomcat50 that is part of this server. I am not able to setup Authentication using the JNDIRealm. When I use Tomcat as a standalone, independent server (when it is not part of the JBoss bundle) I did the following to setup Authentication:

      1) In WEB-INF/web.xml, I set up the security constraints as follows:



      2) In the $CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml, I have setup the JNDIRealm which has the LDAP configuration

      The above setup works well when I use Tomcat as a standalone server...but, how do I use the JNDIRealm in JBoss? I tried to put all the LDAP information in the login-config.xml and created an application-policy with a name 'order'. In my jboss-web.xml for this webapp, I have included the following line


      This didn't work...it takes me to the LoginError.html page (as defined in the web.xml snapshot above)...and I don't see any error messages in the console to try and troubleshoot...

      Is there any way to use JNDIRealm of the Tomcat server, when I use jbossweb-tomcat50.sar? or should I depend on the login-config.xml?

      If I don't use the jboss-web.xml file, regardless of what I enter in the
      username and password field, I get to the Home page, when I hit the login button....

      Can anyone help?

      Thanks much,
