Subject Re: JAAS support
Date Fri, 04 Mar 2005 10:03:03 GMT

It seems that my comment was stripped (by Thunderbird ? I don't know )
So plesae, find below the description of the patch files sent earlier...


I added the creation of the jaas config file if not present in the login 
In fact, the support for JAAS requires to set the env. variable, which 
break compatibility with exiting applications (namely crx).
I'm not sure the login method is the best place to do so. Please advice, 
if ti should go elsewhere.

So the code creates a jaasgenerated.config in the repository home dir if 
the env. variable (java.security.auth.login.config) is not set, and set 
the variable accordingly. So that applications that didn't use jaas 
don't have to bother about this jaas specific stuff (variable+config file).

A better way would have been to look for a more suitable "configuration 
reader" for jaas, but I didn't had time, and resent to add a dependency 
to JackRabbit.

Let me know, if you find that interesting. I attach the patch just in case.

Bertrand Lega.
