Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-3923) Login established without tomcat notification
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 12:29:24 GMT
Login established without tomcat notification

                 Key: GERONIMO-3923
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 2.1, 2.0.2
         Environment: Windows, Linux
            Reporter: Ralf Baumhof

I have set up a security realm (sql realm). In web.xml tomcat is advised to keep a watch an
all pages lying in directory /pages. I use a form login. If the  login form is designed to
use j_security_check action, the servlet authentication works. The first try to access a page
in /pages/* area leads to the login form and after successful login the page is diplayed.
However, the application has strong security impacts, so we would prefer to use a JSF backing
bean which performs a LoginContext method for login to geronimo. This also works. The login
succeeds and i get a principal. But the application is not logged in at tomcat webcontainer.
It's not possible to access the pages in /pages/* area. Is this a bug or a feature???? What
must be done if one want's to use the LoginContext way??? According to the geronimo wiki i
suggest that it should work.
