Subject RE: JAAS Implementation in Geronimo

The short answer is yes.  

The long answer is that Geronimo, since it uses JAAS for authentication,
will be able to use any LoginModule that stores Principals that have
been properly mapped to security roles.  The LoginModule that you speak
of is a highly configurable one that obtains its users and passwords
from a SQL database.  If you don't like that one, you can make one to
behave like the LoginModules that Edward and Kevin discussed about the
other day.  That's the power and extensibility comes from using JAAS.

Will Geronimo implement JAAS like JBOSS? I mean, will it be as
extensible as 
JBOSS enabling the user to place some queries in a descriptor (xml)?


<module-option name-"principalsQuery">Select passwd from Users where 
username = ?<module-option>
