hello david,

thanks for you quick response!
the servlet 3.0 implementation seems to be a much nicer approach. but at the moment I stuck with geronimo 2.2.

> LoginContext lc = org.apache.geronimo.security.ContextManager.login(realm, callbackHandler);
> ContextManager.registerSubject(lc.getSubject());
> ContextManager.setCallers(lc.getSubject(), lc,getSubject());

that is what I wanted to know. thanks.
unfortunately I get an exception when I try this. the exception says that there are no LoginModules configured for the given realm.

I created the realm according to this document:
https://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC22/database-sql-realm.html
I tested the realm, it's working.

As far as I understand, if I create a realm with the geronimo adminstration console, the realm is fully configured and I can reference the realm in my war without further configuration:

LoginContext lc  = org.apache.geronimo.security.ContextManager.login("my_security_realm", this);

because this was not working ( ... no LoginModules configured for the given realm ...), I also tried to add deployment plan of this realm to my ear (geronimo-application.xml). but still I get the exception.

so my deployment plan for my realm look like this:
<module xmlns="http://geronimo.apache.org/xml/ns/deployment-1.2">
    <environment>
        <moduleId>
            <groupId>console.realm</groupId>
            <artifactId>my_security_realm</artifactId>

            </dependency>
        </dependencies>

        <attribute name="realmName">my_security_realm</attribute>
        <attribute name="global">false</attribute>
        <reference name="ServerInfo">
            <name>ServerInfo</name>
        </reference>
        <xml-reference name="LoginModuleConfiguration">
            <log:login-config xmlns:log="http://geronimo.apache.org/xml/ns/loginconfig-2.0">
                <log:login-module control-flag="REQUIRED" wrap-principals="false">
                    <log:login-domain-name>eusoda_security_realm</log:login-domain-name>
                    <log:login-module-class>org.apache.geronimo.security.realm.providers.SQLLoginModule</log:login-module-class>
                    <log:option name="groupSelect">select username, groupname from groups where username=?</log:option>
                    <log:option name="dataSourceApplication">null</log:option>
                    <log:option name="userSelect">select username, password from users where username=?</log:option>
                    <log:option name="dataSourceName">SecurityDatabasePool</log:option>
                </log:login-module>
                <log:login-module control-flag="OPTIONAL" wrap-principals="false">

                    <log:option name="file">var/log/security_log.log</log:option>
                </log:login-module>
            </log:login-config>
        </xml-reference>
    </gbean>
</module>

if I put this plan in my ear, the geronimo-application.xml look like this:

for my war I added this to geronimo-web.xml :

    <web:security-realm-name>my_security_realm</web:security-realm-name>
     <sec:security>
        <sec:role-mappings>
            <sec:role role-name="admin">
                <sec:principal name="administrators"  class="org.apache.geronimo.security.realm.providers.GeronimoGroupPrincipal" />
                <sec:principal name="root" class="org.apache.geronimo.security.realm.providers.GeronimoUserPrincipal" />
            </sec:role>
        </sec:role-mappings>
    </sec:security>

What am I'm doing wrong?

regards,
Andreas

It's not entirely clear what you want to do.

The documentation you point to is still fairly accurate but not really relevant IIUC.

In servlet 3.0 (implemented in geronimo 3.0, not yet released but this part is working), there are new methods on HttpServletRequest where you can either force a login (e.g. form or basic) that has been otherwise configured for the web app or login using username and password you have collected yourself somehow. After this login all container managed security will work just as if the user had tried to access a protected resource and been logged in automatically.

Before servlet 3.0 you can always get some credentials and login but the resulting subject won't automatically be known to the container and container managed security won't work at all unless you do something to register the result.

I think I've given some advice on how to do this on the user list in the past. IIRC you want to do something like

LoginContext lc = org.apache.geronimo.security.ContextManager.login(realm, callbackHandler);
ContextManager.registerSubject(lc.getSubject());
ContextManager.setCallers(lc.getSubject(), lc,getSubject());
//do work

ContextManager.clearCallers();
ContextManager.unregisterSubject(lc.getSubject());
lc.logout();

hope this helps

dear list,

there is an example (time report) on how to configure a form based login (j_security_check) but how am I'm doing a programmatic login with geronimo?
I can not find any references on how to do this with geronimo 2.x

I found this, but I wonder if it is still up to date:
http://docs.huihoo.com/apache/geronimo/1.0/geronimo-and-jaas.html

If the above documentation is obsolet:
Do I need to write a login-config.xm and how does it look like?
Are there any callbackhandler implementations that I can pass to a LoginContext?

Any help is very much appreciated.

Andreas
