    Programmatic authentication...

    Kevin Seal Newbie

      I've implemented a custom LoginModule that seems to work fine through form-based auth.
      However, after quite a lot of reading and trawling through source code I've found no clues as to how I can authenticate a user programmatically :(

      I'd like to be able to implement the following functionality (for starters) in the web app for my enterprise app:
      * login of user at end of registration
      * automatic login of user from cookie

      If anyone's got any ideas on how to go about these using JBoss 3.0.0 (+Tomcat) I'd love to hear them!
      Many thanks in advance.
