Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-1201) All our login modules implement login() incorrectly
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2005 04:12:41 GMT
All our login modules implement login() incorrectly
---------------------------------------------------

         Key: GERONIMO-1201
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-1201
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Bug
  Components: security  
    Versions: 1.0-M5    
    Reporter: Aaron Mulder
 Assigned to: Aaron Mulder 
     Fix For: 1.0


According to the JAAS LoginModule contract, if a login fails, the LoginModule should throw
an exception from the login() method (typically FailedLoginException).  We instead return
false, which does not mean "login failed", but instead means "this login module is not appropriate"
(the stated example for returning false is a root login for an NIS login module).
