Subject Re: No session returned on repository.login

hi all

please note that there is no requirement whatsoever that
a LoginModule should extend from AbstractLoginModule. you can
configure any custom login module implementation.

but: you have to make sure that the subject populated upon
commit() fits the access restrictions enforced by the configured 
AccessManager and WorkspaceAccessManager. the setup might even
work without any principals if you configure the repository to use
e.g. a dummy authorization setup... that only depends on your

kind regards
