Subject Re: JOSSO with Geronimo
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2007 16:26:31 GMT
I looked at the JOSSO documentation really quickly and think that  
there won't be an advantage to using the tomcat realm rather than the  
default jacc based realm.  I think you can configure the josso login  
module in a geronimo security realm with no problems.  The only  
possible tricky parts  are installing the JOSSO valve and running the  
josso agent.  There are instructions available somewhere on how to  
install a valve in geronimo-tomcat.  I don't understand from the docs  
if you are supposed to run a separate agent: if so you will probably  
have to write a gbean to start/stop it.

hope this overly brief comment is of some help...
