Subject remote hadoop in tomcat with jaas security
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 18:47:59 GMT

Our application runs in Tomcat 5.5, Java 6.17, with JAAS.
We give our own implementation to LoginModule and we start Tomcat with -Djava.security.auth.login.config.
We use Hadoop

We want to execute Hadoop jobs, or Hadoop FileSystem methods from within our application,

Problem: once we use/initialize Hadoop's configuration (either by calling org.apache.hadoop.fs.FileSystem.get(Configuration)
or by calling org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobClient.runJob(JobConf)), the implementation of LoginModule
changes from ours to org.apache.hadoop.security.UserGroupInformation.HadoopLoginModule, and
we cannot login to our application anymore!

However, there is no problem with the remote execution of the jobs.

I saw this thread (Use JAAS LoginContext for our login<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6299>).
Does it fixes the problem?
It looks like it will still create a new LoginModule? Won't it?

Thanks for any help
