Subject RE: Change Password Provider: Java Client?

Thank you very much for the response.  For now, I will most likely just wrap MIT's kpasswd
command with some system calls from my servlet ... but perhaps some day I'll have a chance
to rip out an equivalent pure-java class.
Thank you for your time,

Not that we know of, though we've looked and we'd love to have one!

There's a client for Linux called 'gnome-kerberos' that can do kpasswd 
(in addition to regular kerberos).  I'm not sure if it's still under 
development but you can get it off apt.

$ apt-get install gnome-kerberos

We test with gnome-kerberos and Windows Security.  But no Java client.
