Thread: Programmatic Authentication API

  1. Programmatic Authentication API


    Readin through the WL Server 8.1 docs on security, there is a section which talks
    about "Using the Programmatic Authentication API" in web apps, as opposed to posting
    to j_security_check. That section talks about two built-in CallbackHandler impls
    named SimpleCallbackHandler and URLCallbackHandler. What is the purpose of the
    URLCallbackHandler? Specifically, what is the URL passed into the constrauctor
    supposed to represent?

    The docs say to look at the javadoc comments which, unfortunately, are completely
    useless.

    TIA

    The URLcallbackhandler is used primarily for fat clients that are using jaas
    to login
    into the server. The url is that of the server.
