I have a requirement to run JBoss without the embedded Tomcat and I need to do the following:
"Gain access to the DatabaseServerLoginModule if I'm running Tomcat and Jboss in two different JVMs."
I have done the following:
1. Created a loginServlet that reads the user name and password from the UI
2. Created a new LoginContext("configName" customCallbackHandler);
"configName" maps to the DatabaseServerLoginModule in the login-config.xml
3. Connect to Jboss using a InitialContext.
InitialContext jndiCtx = new InitialContext();
I would like my LoginContext to use the DatabaseServerLoginModule within the Jboss's JVM so I can get the information needed to do url request validation.
Another news group told me that I might have to write some RMI code in order to perform inter-JVM authentication. ???
