    how can i use JNDIRealm with JBoss?

    F B Newbie

      Any help much appreciated!!

      I am trying to use JNDIRealm so that I can authenticate (user) logins against user data stored in an LDAP server (Sun One v5.2) - but am not making much progress. I am also using a security-filter and the web-app operates over HTTPS

      I think I have must have misconfigured but don't know where/what- if anyone can spot anything, that would be great!

      My configuration files appear as follows:
      [from securityfilter-config.xml in my WAR's WEB-INF]
      <login-config>
      <auth-method>FORM</auth-method>
      <realm-name>x</realm-name>
      <form-login-config>
      <form-login-page>/DefaultLogin.jsp</form-login-page>
      <form-error-page>/jsp/tiles/DefaultMessages.jsp</form-error-page>
      <form-default-page>/initialiseData.do</form-default-page>
      </form-login-config>
      </login-config>

      <security-role>
      Standard User
      <role-name>myuser</role-name>
      </security-role>


      <realm-param name="connectionURL" value="ldap://mymachine.mycompany.com:389"/>
      <realm-param name="userPattern" value="uid={0},ou=people,dc=dataduct,dc=com"/>
      <realm-param name="roleBase" value="ou=groups,dc=dataduct,dc=com"/>
      <realm-param name="roleName" value="cn"/>
      <realm-param name="roleSearch" value="(uniqueMember={0})"/>
      <realm-param name="contextFactory" value="com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory"/>


      [my ref to the securityfilter-config in web.xml - again in WAR's WEB-INF]

      <filter-name>Security Filter</filter-name>
      <filter-class>org.securityfilter.filter.SecurityFilter</filter-class>
      <init-param>
      <param-name>config</param-name>
      <param-value>/WEB-INF/securityfilter-config.xml</param-value>
      Configuration file location
      </init-param>
      <init-param>
      <param-name>validate</param-name>
      <param-value>true</param-value>
      Validate config file if set to true
      </init-param>


      <!-- map all requests to the SecurityFilter, control what it does with configuration settings -->
      <filter-mapping>
      <filter-name>Security Filter</filter-name>
      <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
      </filter-mapping>


      [and the part of server.xml on that refs to HTTPS]
      <!-- SSL/TLS Connector configuration using the admin devl guide keystore -->






      The problem is manifesting itself when I deploy the my WAR file (I am using Struts 1.2.7 & Tomcat 5.5 bundled in JBoss 4.0.2) - JBoss reports an InvocationTargetException
