Subject AW: How to set up Jackrabbit with JAAS
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2008 12:29:20 GMT
I searched the mailing archive and I found a lot about the Login Module but somehow I am confused
as to where I would integrate this module.

My Application has a LDAP Security setup working with spring security and all I need to secure
now is the Jackrabbit web-application that runs on a different server and provides RMI access
for my application. The Jackrabbit web-application I left as I downloaded it and initiate
a standard repository.

So I am guessing I have to implement that LoginModule somewhere in the Jackrabbit web-application
that I downloaded? And if so, where would I add the LoginModule in that application? There
is lots of complicated JAAS documentation but nothing about how to implement that into the
given web-application.

Does anyone know where I can find more information? I am really lost as where to start implementing
this stuff.

Ive gathered from viewing these emails that the correct way is to implement
your own JAAS LoginModule.

Search the email archive for LoginModule and there are some references to
how to do that.  Unfortunately I cannot help more because I handled security
integration in a different (i.e. non-correct wrt the standard that JR
expects) way.
