Subject RE: Jetspeed and Jboss
Date Thu, 01 May 2003 19:28:40 GMT
I guess that last post was confusing. I'll be more specific on what I need and see if the general
community feels these are good requirements for everyone, or if it is too specific.  Basically,
how can I use what is already built into the application server (Jboss in this instance)?

1. Username/Password/Authentication:  All Authentication for most of my web applications are
already implemented in JBoss. Can Jetspeed use JBoss for Authentication? 

2. Groups/Roles/Authorization part1: Jboss has Authorization capability already in place.
 Can Jetspeed use Jboss for Authorization?

Maybe I'm just asking for too much, but where this functionality is already available in most
Application Server platforms, I would think the easy way to get Jetspeed running is to make
some configuration changes (in WEB-INF folder), WAR, and deploy Jetspeed and start running
with the already in-place Authentication and Authorization systems.

3. Permissions/Authorization part2:  Users already exist, just need to handle default permissions
and how to add/modify/remove permissions. The existing Torque/Turbine still talks to a database,
so maybe continue with the default HSQL to handle non-default permissions based on USERID
from Authentication?

I'm a little confused by your post. Turbine is (basically) a servlet that
provides services to Jetspeed. JBoss is an application server (including a
servlet container). Jetspeed (linked to Turbine) is easily deployed under
JBoss as is.
