    Meaning of the application-policy name

    Josh Reeves Newbie


      login-config.xml entries start with

      <application-policy name="security-domain-name">

      As explained in Ch 8 of the Admin Guide (p. 278):

      The name attribute of the application-policy is the login configuration name. This corresponds to the portion of
      the jboss.xml and jboss-web.xml security-domain element value after the java:/jaas/ prefix.

      OK. Searching for available jboss-web.xml among those deployed.
      Found one under

      and another under


      OK. First contains uncommented:

      2nd has:

      Piece in bold looks like JNDI name to me (wrong?).
      OK, invoking list() on JNDIView.

      Under jaas there is:
       +- jaas (class: javax.naming.Context)
       | +- JmsXARealm
       | +- jbossmq
       | +- HsqlDbRealm

      I can see "jbossmq", but no "jmx-console".

      Now, my Q: what is the significance of the
      <application-policy name="security-domain-name">
      Is it an arbitrary one or ...?
      Anyway, your help is apreciated.

      Thank you,
