    Security migration from weblogic to Jboss

    Syed Ahmed Mohiuddin Newbie

      Hi All,

      I'm new to Jboss, currently I'm trying to migrate my app from weblogic to jboss. My problem is that in my app, I got weblogic specific security code that I'm trying to convert into Jboss specific. I don't know what is Jboss equivalent security code. If any body know, please forward the equivalent code. I will really appreciate that.

      Thanks in advance

      Here is my weblogic specific code

      import za.co.rmba.di.ejb.*;
      import za.co.rmba.di.beans.*;
      import za.co.rmba.di.util.*;
      import za.co.rmba.di.exception.*;
      import java.math.BigDecimal;
      import javax.ejb.*;
      import java.rmi.*;
      import java.security.acl.*;
      import java.util.*;
      import java.math.*;
      import javax.servlet.http.*;
      import weblogic.security.acl.*;

      public class UserDelegate {

      private UserSession session;
      private static final Class homeClass = za.co.rmba.di.ejb.UserSessionHome.class;

      public UserBean getUser(HttpServletRequest request, String database) throws DataAccessException, RemoteException, AuthenticationException {
      UserBean bean = null;
      try {
      ServiceLocator.getInitialContext(request.getParameter("username"), request.getParameter("password"));
      if (hasRole("DI")) {
      bean = session.getUser(request.getParameter("username"),database);
      else {
      throw new Exception("User does not have access to DI.");
      catch (Exception e) {
      throw new AuthenticationException("Could not validate user.");
      return bean;

      private static User getUser() {
      return Security.getCurrentUser();

      private static Collection getRoles() {
      Collection roles = new ArrayList();
      ListableRealm realm = (ListableRealm) getUser().getRealm();
      Enumeration enum = realm.getGroups();
      while (enum.hasMoreElements()) {
      Group grp = (Group) enum.nextElement();
      if ( (grp.getName() != "everyone") && (grp.isMember(getUser())) ) {
      return roles;

      private static boolean hasRole(String aRoleName) {
      boolean hasRole = false;
      Iterator iter = getRoles().iterator();
      while (iter.hasNext()) {
      if ( ((Group) iter.next()).getName().equals(aRoleName) ) {
      hasRole = true;
      return hasRole;

      public static InitialContext getInitialContext(String userName, String password) throws javax.naming.AuthenticationException, ServiceLocatorException {
      try {
      Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
      env.put(Context.SECURITY_AUTHENTICATION, "simple");
      env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, userName);
      env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);
      return new InitialContext(env);
      catch (javax.naming.AuthenticationException ae) {
      throw ae;
      catch (NamingException ne) {
      throw new ServiceLocatorException("ServiceLocatorException (NamingException) while trying to get the InitialContext.");
      catch (Exception e) {
      throw new ServiceLocatorException("ServiceLocatorException (Unknown) while trying to get the InitialContext.");
