> In order to proceed with JS2-297, I'd like to see the attached patch (against M3) applied.
It allows a UserManager to be passed to DefaultLoginModule and JBossLoginModule.
> As described in JS2-297, my goal is to make the user/group/role components of Jetspeed
available as a JetspeedSecurityService MBean (i.e. as "application server extensions"). This
MBean can then provide a UserManager. A login module based on this service would obtain the
MBean, get the UserManager and use it in its login module (quite straight-forward). The current
implementation of DefaultLoginModule "insists" on obtaining the UserManager via a LoginModuleProxy
that is instantiated for the single purpose of holding a static reference to the UserManager
(this is marked as a hack in the comment, and rightly so). While I can, of course, keep instantiating
a LoginProxy, there is really no reason for doing this. And of course, I'd like to avoid duplicating
DefaultLoginModule and JBossLoginModule.
