    Dynamic login config broken in JBoss 5 Beta4

    Javid Jamae Newbie

      Dynamic login config does not work in Beta4, but I verified that the same code / configuration worked in Beta3.

      The exception is:

      Is this a known issue?

          Does anybody know if this is a known issue, or should I open a bug?

          • 2. Re: Dynamic login config broken in JBoss 5 Beta4
            Anil Saldanha Master

            There was a change in the classloaders from Unified Classloader to VFS Classloader. What it basically means is that resources are detected in a strict spec compliant way.

            For an ear, if you have a war underneath the resource(xml file) can be under WEB-INF/classes. If not, you can have ear/lib/somejar/xyz.xml or you will need to use the manifest to define classpath entries.

            For an ear, the classpath will not include the root of the ear. Hence META-INF/xyz.xml will not be detected. ear->lib, ear->war->WEB-INF/classes are on the classpath.

              I had a WAR file, but that is what the problem was. I had to move the dynamic-login.xml file to the WEB-INF/classes directory.

              One thing that should be noted is that (I think) the default file that the dynamic login config service looks for is not available in this new "strict" classpath.

                OK, I just tried this out on CR1, using the same code that I got to work on Beta4, and it doesn't seem to work. Did something change again?

                Here is the service:

                <server>
                 <mbean code="org.jboss.security.auth.login.DynamicLoginConfig"
                 name="jboss:service=DynamicLoginConfig">
                 <attribute name="AuthConfig">dynamic-login-config.xml</attribute>
                 <depends optional-attribute-name="LoginConfigService">jboss.security:service=XMLLoginConfig</depends>
                 <depends optional-attribute-name="SecurityManagerService">jboss.security:service=JaasSecurityManager</depends>
                 </mbean>
                </server>
                


                Here is the dynamic-login-config.xml file (in my WEB-INF/classes directory) so it should be accessible by the VFS Classloader:

                <policy>
                
                 <application-policy name = "simple-security-domain">
                 <authentication>
                 <login-module code="org.jboss.security.auth.spi.UsersRolesLoginModule" flag = "required">
                 <module-option name="usersProperties">myusers.properties</module-option>
                 <module-option name="rolesProperties">myroles.properties</module-option>
                 </login-module>
                 </authentication>
                 </application-policy>
                
                </policy>
                


                And here is the error:

                  Javid Jamae Newbie

                  So is this a bug in CR1? Has anybody been able to get dynamic login to work?

                  If possible, could somebody point me to where the unit tests might be for this, because I couldn't seem to find them.

                  • 6. Re: Dynamic login config broken in JBoss 5 Beta4
                    jaikiran pai Master

                    I tried this on JBoss-5 CR1 and even JBoss-5 Beta4. Looks like something changed between Beta 4 and CR1. The application that works on Beta 4, does not work on CR1. However, i could get the application to work on CR1 too by placing the xml at a different location.

                    Here are the details. I have an EAR file which has a test-jboss-service.xml, a dynamic-login-config.xml, a jboss-app.xml and a WAR file. For JBoss-5 Beta 4, here's the EAR contents:

                    ZEJB3Persistence.ear
                     |
                     |--- META-INF
                     | |
                     | |--- application.xml
                     | |
                     | |--- jboss-app.xml
                     |
                     |
                     |--- test-jboss-service.xml
                     |
                     |
                     |--- MyApp.war
                     | |
                     | |--- WEB-INF
                     | | |
                     | | |--- classes
                     | | | |
                     | | | |--- dynamic-login-config.xml
                    
                    
                    


                    The dynamic-login-config.xml was in the EAR/WAR/WEB-INF/classes folder. The jboss-app.xml pointed to the service file:
                    <jboss-app>
                    
                     <module>
                     <service>test-jboss-service.xml</service>
                     </module>
                    </jboss-app>


                    The test-jboss-service.xml looks like:

                    <server>
                     <mbean code="org.jboss.security.auth.login.DynamicLoginConfig"
                     name="jboss:service=DynamicLoginConfig">
                     <attribute name="AuthConfig">dynamic-login-config.xml</attribute>
                     <depends optional-attribute-name="LoginConfigService">jboss.security:service=XMLLoginConfig</depends>
                     <depends optional-attribute-name="SecurityManagerService">jboss.security:service=JaasSecurityManager</depends>
                     </mbean>
                    </server>
                    


                    This worked without any issues in Beta 4. I could see this in the server.log:

                    For an ear, if you have a war underneath the resource(xml file) can be under WEB-INF/classes. If not, you can have ear/lib/somejar/xyz.xml or you will need to use the manifest to define classpath entries.

                    For an ear, the classpath will not include the root of the ear. Hence META-INF/xyz.xml will not be detected. ear->lib, ear->war->WEB-INF/classes are on the classpath.


                    In CR1, i then moved the dynamic-login-config.xml to the EAR/lib folder. Even that did not work. Failed with the same error.

                    Finally, to get this working, i moved the dynamic-login-config.xml to the root of the EAR:

                      I think that this behavior reflects the closing of a hole in the classloading architecture. Essentially, classes within a war should be isolated and not accessible from outside the war. This includes resources. Therefore, the behavior for beta4 was incorrect, while the behavior for CR1 is correct. And the "workaround" Jaikarin posted is in fact the correct way of doing this.

                      So I guess I disagree with Anil's earlier statement of what is on the classpath - the xxx.war/web-inf/classes path should not be on the classpath of an ear.

                      I did notice in the betas that the class isolation rules were relaxed. For a while, it appeared as if there was a single classloader repository and thus all classes, including those in WAR files, were visible everywhere. I noticed that this hole was plugged in CR1.

                        The resources need to go inside a jar under the EAR/lib directory. I am unsure why resources at the root of the ear are still working. I need to ping Adrian on this one.

                          It's due to this flag we added, specially for you. ;-)

                          but in the future it should be false.

                            Anil,

                            So does this mean that the dynamic login config xml file can no longer be packaged individually? It always has to be part of a jar file(inside the EAR/lib)?

                            In general, assuming that in future releases the includeEarRootInClasspath flag is set to false, any xml config file which was earlier at the root of the EAR will now have to be packaged in a jar and included in the lib folder to be available in the application's classpath?

                              Ales, if I put beans inside xxx-jboss-beans.xml and place it inside a jar in the EAR/lib, I saw that it was not getting deployed. Do you know we scan there (I mean the ear classpath) for the beans?

                                No, we only scan true deployments for metadata resources.
                                Ear classpath != true deployment.

                                  So, if an user wants to bundle beans inside EARs, where does he need to put? I personally deploy beans outside of the EARs (as a separate deployment).

                                    Plain jar inside ear?

                                    e.g. someapp.ear/my-beans.jar
                                    - META-INF/mybeans-jboss-beans.xml
                                    - com|org|net|si| ...
