Subject Re: Improving Jackrabbit integration with OSGi - JAAS
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 05:59:44 GMT
That can be done but the implementation looks like a workaround. One
possible implementation is at [1]. It switches to OSGi mode if it
finds configuration through SPI otherwise it follows a logic similar
to one in LocalAuthContext. It has an extra benefit of handling OSGI
dynamism in a better way i.e. if the configuration through OSGi goes
away it switches back to local one. So better suitable for cases like
OSGi

But using LoginContext from within a LoginModule does not look good
:). Having first class support for such cases in JR core would help in
other places also.
