    JBoss fallback mechanism for authentication methods

    Stephen Carter Newbie

      I am using the CLIENT-CERT authentication method and I would like to implement a fallback mechanism so that the user can login with a username/password, in the case that they do not posess a certificate. BEA has an easy way to do this, by allowing a comma separated list of <auth-method>'s.

      http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E12840_01/wls/docs103/security/thin_client.html#auth-method

      I am new to JBoss and I am wondering if there is a clean way to accomplish this with JBoss AS? Thoughts?

      Thanks in advance,
