Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-3216) Refactor http authentication to make it more flexible and simpler
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2011 15:14:14 GMT


Jason Chen commented on CXF-3216:

Hi Christian, when you said Kerberos auth can now be configured, does that include the policy
handler as well?
I just looked at the nightly build source code and couldn't see how the SymmetricBindingHandler
ever gets the KerberosToken or SpnegoToken since there is no token subclasses and builiders
for these tokens.

I quickly tried the latest snapshot for kerberos auth and got the following exception:
Caused by: No signature token

which makes sense. I can see the SpnegoAuthSupplier executed and get the token from our KDC
and inserted into the headers. So I tried disabling the the policy engine with "<p:engine
enabled="false"></p:engine>" config and now get this exception:
org.w3c.dom.DOMException: NOT_FOUND_ERR
	at weblogic.xml.domimpl.ParentNode.internalRemoveChild(
	at weblogic.xml.domimpl.ParentNode.removeChild(
	at weblogic.xml.domimpl.ElementBase.removeChild(

Am I missing something obvious here? Will I need to implement the policy builder and token
myself? I am new to this and happy to contribute if this hasn't been implemented, so any pointers
are appreciated.

simply delegate to it.
> We should also remove some of the other auth config options besides authorizationPolicy
on conduit.
