    Authentication exception, principal=null when running howto

    Dave Chong Newbie

      I'm trying to run the SessionClient from the howto examples. I can login and find the home interface but when the create() method is called from the home interface an exception occurs. What am I doing wrong?
      I am using JBoss 3.03.

      here is the stack trace-

        • 1. Re: Authentication exception, principal=null when running ho
          Dave Chong Newbie

          Ok, I figured it out. I have to add a module to my "TestClient" entry in auth.conf. The module I had to add was
          "org.jboss.security.ClientLoginModule required
          ;"

          Now my "TestClient" entry in auth.conf looks like this.
          TestClient {
          // A properties file LoginModule that supports CallerPrincipal mapping

          org.jboss.security.auth.spi.UsersRolesLoginModule required
          unauthenticatedIdentity=nobody
          ;
          org.jboss.security.ClientLoginModule required
          ;
          };


          I can now run the SessionClient from my ide and get the following output.

          +++ Running SessionClient with username=scott, password=echoman, example=example1
          Created LoginContext
          Found StatelessSessionHome
          Created StatelessSession
          Bean.echo('Hello') -> Hello
          Found StatefulSessionHome
          Created StatefulSession
          Bean.noop() called
          Bean.echo('Hello') -> Hello
          Process terminated with exit code 0

          I hope this helps someone else.

          thanks
