I had started looking at JBoss 4.2.2GA a few months back. The basic scneario is:
a. I deploy multiple applications in multiple instances of JBoss running on the same machine.
b. Use JBoss security model for authenticating users and have a custom class which extends the JBoss databaseLoginModule class to do the authentication mentioned above.
Since JBoss 5 is a shift (from the current architecture) I was wondering what impact this would have(if any) on the list above? Do things need to be done differently , esp. for the security model in JBoss 5 or will I be able to continue using my custom Jar which extends the databaseLoginModule class of Jboss?
Any insight into this would be appreciated. Thanks.
The security mechanisms you used in 4.2.x should work just the same in 5.0. I did not notice that I had to do any changes to my security configuration when migrating, and I do use the database login module.
