AS7 : Security Domain Model - need help!

chris81t Newbie

Hello,

 

I'm writing a web application ( using JBoss AS7.0.2 ) which requires a login. A few month's ago I have written a custom loginModule / Realm for the glassfish server ( custom while using db-tables that knows the login-informations. I know that DatabaseModules exist, but the given/required table structure of that existing db-module doesn't match with my db-model )

 

I have found following article: http://community.jboss.org/wiki/JBossAS7SecurityDomainModel

 

There I found the hint to the article: http://community.jboss.org/wiki/JBossAS7SecurityCustomLoginModules

 

First question: Is a custom login module only possible with the coming AS 7.1 release? Or can I use it with my AS 7.0.2 app-server?

 

 

So my first step is to write a simple prototype- example web application, which uses the UsersRoles Security Domain.

 

First I have added to the standalone.xml following part (<security-domain name="form-auth" cache-type="default">...</security-domain>):

 

 

            <security-domains>
                <security-domain name="other" cache-type="default">
                    <authentication>
                        <login-module code="Disabled" flag="required"/>
                    </authentication>
                </security-domain>
                <security-domain name="form-auth" cache-type="default">
                    <authentication>
                        <login-module code="UsersRoles" flag="required">
                            <module-option name="usersProperties" value="users.properties"/>
                            <module-option name="rolesProperties" value="roles.properties"/>
                        </login-module>
                    </authentication>
                </security-domain>
            </security-domains>

 

Now my web- example project (JSF2.0 using CDI) (is attached as an eclipse project to this post):

 

- the project contains the properties files

 

I have got as the welcome page a start.xhtml. While defined the security-constraint in the web.xml the login.xhtml page (two input fields for user/password and one commandButton for the login) should be called, if an access to the start.xhtml will occur.

 

Here some code-snippets:

 

The managed bean, which executes the login while pressing the commandButton:

@Named
@RequestScoped
public class LoginBean implements Serializable {


          private static final long serialVersionUID = -6308095244497641582L;
          private String user;
          private String password;

          public String getUser() {
                    return user;
          }
          public void setUser(String user) {
                    this.user = user;
          }
          public String getPassword() {
                    return password;
          }
          public void setPassword(String password) {
                    this.password = password;
          }

          public String login() {
                    FacesContext fc = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
                    ExternalContext ec = fc.getExternalContext();
                    HttpServletRequest hsr = (HttpServletRequest) ec.getRequest();

                    try {
                              hsr.login(user, password);  
                    }
                    catch (ServletException se) { 
                              // create a message to inform the user
                              FacesMessage msg = new FacesMessage(FacesMessage.SEVERITY_WARN,
                                                                                                                        "Ein falscher Profilname und " +
                                                                                                                        "oder ein falsches Passwort " +
                                                                                                                        "wurde eingegeben!",
                                                                                                                        null);
                              fc.addMessage(null, msg);
                              return null;
                    } 

                    // for the first test simply navigate to the one existing page
                    return "/start";
          }
}
