Integrating JAAS with JSF

Greetings James, Chris & Ed!

I am interested in a portable (cross JEE server) solution for providing authentication/authorization via JAAS in a JSF-based application. Does your book offer some advice, how-to or examples in this area?

I really want to have a generic security mechanism that does not rely so heavily on what the specific host container offers. In this way the application distribution and installation may be greatly simplified.

The book provides coverage on JSF and both application and container managed security. There is specific coverage of interacting with JAAS and JSF.

You're in luck, this book covers exactly that case on page 436: Leveraging JAAS from a JSF Application.
