Subject [jira] [Created] (FELIX-3984) Use default application/realm name of 'other' if none specified
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 09:03:20 GMT
Chetan Mehrotra created FELIX-3984:

             Summary: Use default application/realm name of 'other' if none specified
                 Key: FELIX-3984
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-3984
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: JAAS
    Affects Versions: jaas-1.0.0
            Reporter: Chetan Mehrotra
            Assignee: Chetan Mehrotra
            Priority: Minor

Any LoginModule registered via config or factory SHOULD provide a realm/application name.
However if none is specified then the realm name should be assumed to be 'other'. 

Following should be supported

1. In case no realm name specified via 'jaas.realmName' the value should be set to 'other'
2. This default value can be changed by Admin via Configuration Spi settings and set it to
any other value

The significance of using 'other' here is that LoginContext would first check config entry
for provided applicationName. If none is found then it looks for config entry for an app name
'other'. So for default setup LoginModules which does not have any appname specified would
be considered as part of 'other'. if the admin changes that then no such default logic would
be used
