Subject authentication - JDBC Realm
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2000 00:20:55 GMT
Hi,

In the servlet spec, it is stated that a security role can be mapped to
a user group or to a principal. Am I right in thinking that only the
latter is supported in the JDBC Realm implementation? If so, does anyone
have any suggestions of how to support the former mapping elegantly?
Incidentally, given the definitions in the servlet spec 2.2, would it
not have been more correct to talk about the 'JDBC Security Technology
Domain' (yuk ;-) rather than a 'JDBC Realm' (== Security Policy Domain)?

Thanks for any clarifications,

Yo
