    configuring the number of allowed attempts for user

    Venkataramana Borusu Newbie


      This is my first post in to this forum. I am new to JAAS, so please correct me if I am going in wrong path.

      For user authentication we are planning to use JAAS: HTTP-basic authentication. We have requirement to configure the number of allowed attempts for user, if they fail while trying to LOG-IN. I have configured the my application, if user fails to login, by defaults JAAS-JBOSS is allowing the user for 3 attempts, if user fails on 4th attempt, user will be redirected to default login fail page. We need to change this number of attempts.We are planning to use BASIC authentication model.
      Any inputs are welcome?.

      Thanks much,
