We are developing an internal portal that uses ActiveDirectory to authenticate and authorize the users. It is struts/tiles based. I have written a LoginModule for the AD http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=53499. I want the users to be logged into the portal automatically.
When you turn on Windows Integrated Authentication in IE the windows user name can be retreived with request.getRemoteUser() as long as you are not hitting a secured URI. I created a login jsp that uses java script to autopost to j_security_check however it appears that when the server sends the browser to the login page the user name is no longer in the request. Is there a way around this?
I don't need the password just the user name.
Never mind, I'm giving up on JBoss and going back to WebLogic. The isapi redirector doesn't work except under very specific circustances so I can't use JBoss.
