Subject Faking SSO to wiki from java app
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2009 16:09:48 GMT
I have an existing Java app running in JBoss that uses a simple DB table 
to do it's authentication.  I want to be able to click on a link in the 
existing Java app and have our wiki popup, already logged in using the 
Java app's user id.  I have already programmed the Java app to redirect to 
the wiki, but I am at a lost as to where to start with the authentication. 
 My initial thoughts were to create a custom JSP which calls a custom 
class which "fakes" the login and sets up the security info for the wiki. 
However, after reading several of the JAAS and security docs, I think 
there may be an easier way to do this.

In summary, I want my wiki to authenticate using my existing app's user
