    Anyone got a windows NT JAAS implementation to work?

    Mauricio Newbie

      Hi everyone!

      Anyone got a Windows implementation of JAAS working for NT Domains? Ive tried the ones from IBM and the ones from tagish, but couldn't get them to work with JBoss (although configuring JAAS in Jboss is dead simple).

      Any reply saying "yes I have" would be damn apreciated.

      By the way: Ive seen too many postings on this and no solution. Hell! We should write a how to for this...

          Somehow I'm not surprised that the one from IBM didn't work. You see, WebSphere only uses JAAS for the interface seen by the _client_. What really happens behind the scenes, is that IBM uses its own UserRegistry classes to actually check the users' passwords, associate them with the user groups, etc.

          Short story is that unless all you want to do is log into a WebSphere server, you can forget about IBM's JAAS classes. All of them are basically around the same level of functionality as JBoss's client loging module.

          That said, no, I have never needed to check the users against an NT domain. _If_ you know how to get that information from NT, I'd assume that wrapping it up in a JAAS module can't be that hard.
