i'm kinda beginner with J2EE but at the very least briefly know about most of its features. i would like to make a login for my application that uses j_security_check since it's cool how JAAS it restricts usage of each method of your EJBs and web pages etc. so far i made it authentificate/authorize user against records in database via simple login menu. i found out you can obtain the username from the principal object and you have some interface to generate pages dependent on that user's role. i wonder if there is a way to somehow obtain the whole user profile during the login process. i figured, the standard j_security_check doesn't much let you interact with the login form. how would you proceed with this?
Whole profile in j_security or in a custom approach. Normally with those inbuilt functionality added some limitations. Normally what I'm doing is through a normal database query retrieve all required details and store them temporally in sessions and so on.
yea but what i can't figure out is how do i notice there has been a login. in the form you can't add any functionality.. :(
I'm not sure that you've gone through this.
