I'm just starting to migrate our application from Weblogic to Jboss 5.1. In weblogic we authenticate our users against the user console built into weblogic. If you are familiar with weblogic you know that you can add/modify/delete users/groups via the admin console, and the same can be done programmatic-ally. Is there anything similar in Jboss? In the brief perusing I have done, the only user-role authentication I've seen involves properties files or the database. Have I missed something? Thank you for your help.
