    Help, servlet form based validation

    John Rothfield Newbie

      I'm using JBoss-2.4.6_Tomcat-4.0.3.

      I'm setting up authentication. I've got it now so that the system brings up a login.jsp. The problem is that the web tier authentication allows any login,password combination and that isInRole doesn't work on the web tier. The ejb tier works properly, in that if it checks the roles and throws an exception if the user is unauthorized. "example2" is what I'm using in auth.conf. Question: do I need to add "example2" to /jboss/client/auth.conf ??? It seems that the web tier validation is putting up login.jsp as specified, but then not validating against the database.
      Also, how do I logout the user later? I believe I would need the logincontext object.

      Thanks, John

          I believe my problem is in the setup of auth.conf for tomcat. In the logs I get :

          [INFO,Shutdown] Shutdown hook added
          [INFO,DefaultLoginConfig] Using JAAS LoginConfig: file:/D:/JBoss-2.4.6_Tomcat-4.
          0.3/jboss/conf/catalina/auth.conf
          [WARN,ConfigurationService$ServiceProxy] Security:name=DefaultLoginConfig does not implement any Service methods
