Subject Re: packaging a custom LoginModule?
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2005 21:37:57 GMT
First, I think that in M5 you have to package your class in our  
security jar, so you should use the head version.

You should be able to construct a jar including your class, and get it  
into the application classloader using a  
element.  I think I actually tested something like this when I added  
support for it :-)

n.b. the uri format is going to change in a couple hours to  
toby/cabot/1.0/jar so you may want to use the longer form
