Subject Re: JNDI provider / remote jndi
Date Wed, 15 Sep 2004 14:11:05 GMT
Quick question on remote JNDI access.

Does the java: provider below one provide remote access -- ie j2ee 
client app?

For security reasons, we want to be able to bind some/all resources for 
a given app into a jndi tree (by any reasonable means: subtree / 
provider / naming convention) that cannot be accessed outside of the 
cluster. This will stop users who can authenticate to the container, 
being able to write a client app, to pull (for example) a database 
connection out of jndi and bypass business rules to hit the db 

Thanks for any help,
