I find j2ee/jboss security hard to get a good grip on for a beginner. The 3-4 year old tutorial is good but It lacks one thing. how to connect from an application client. All the tutorials Ive found only show examples of servlets and web pages.
Im trying to create an application that you enter usersname password to use it(application using web start, but that shouldnt make a lot of difference). Then authenticate this username/password with something on the server (id prefer a db for updatepurposes).
It confuses me enough to learn this the first time. But do deploy it on an application messes me up totally
