    JAAS examples don't work in JBoss2.4.3-Catalina

    Patrick Newbie

      Hi, I have seen many posts to this effect but no resolution. Has anyone solved this? Details below.

      I have built and deployed example1.ear from the example source. Everything seems fine, no errors on deployment or startup. However Catalina fails to try and authenticate when you access the http://localhost:8080/restricted/SecuredServlet. It simple shows a 403. The console tells me

      [Default] Bad password for username=null

      In the example, the jboss/conf/catalina/auth.conf for example 1 is

      example1 {
      org.jboss.security.auth.spi.UsersRolesLoginModule required


      and my jboss.jcml in jboss/conf/catalina/
      <!-- JAAS security manager and realm mapping -->


      Otherwise, I build the code exactly as is and followed the instructions.

      This is what occurs at startup.... all looks very normal and healthy.

          I think ur problem is you are not able to send the
          principals and credentials to the app server.

          Try this out, Put this code just before the place where you are looking for ejb beans in the client.

          System.setProperty("java.security.auth.login.config", "file://path to the file auth.conf/auth.conf");//This file is in ../jboss-*/client/auth.conf
          // args[0]and args[1] are user name and pass words as strings
          char[] pwd = args[1].toCharArray();
          AppCallbackHandler handler = new AppCallbackHandler(args[0], pwd);//This class shold be in classpath
          System.out.println("Creating LoginContext");
          lc = new LoginContext("Client", handler);
          System.out.println("Created LoginContext");
          catch (LoginException le)
          System.out.println("Login failed");

          and in ../jboss*/client/auth.conf

          put this

          Client {
          org.jboss.security.ClientLoginModule required;

          I think this will work for you

            Hi Rajesh,
            Thanks for your response, but I don't think this is the right solution. My "Client" is a servlet in Catalina. It should automatically provide a "BASIC" style authentication when required.

            It seems that this is a bug in the JBoss2.4.3-Catalina binary distribution that was not present in the JBoss2.4.1-Tomcat3.2.3 distribution.

            Has this bug been fixed in a recent CVS version?
