    SPNEGO JAAS CallBackHandler?

    Kevin Ward Newbie

      I'm writing a thick java client application which interfaces with a JBOSS 5.1 back-end. For one deployment a SPNEGO Login module is used. I've had success before autheticating to LDAP login modules using the UsernamePasswordCallbackHandler but when I tried to use this to authenticate to SPNEGO a null pointer was thrown.

      I've been searching around for a callbackhandler specific to SPNEGO but have been unable to find one, does anyone know if such a thing exists or if not, can you point me in the right direction for authenticating to SPNEGO using a thick java client?

      UsernamePasswordHandler handler = new UsernamePasswordHandler(username,
       password);
      
       LoginContext lc = new LoginContext("SPNEGO", handler);
       lc.login();
