Hi Guys.

I have a task to do, and for several days am searching but not founding the solution.
So, I have to do a module to authenticate one user to an external LDAP via weblogic.
So, the modul does not know that there is a LDAP behind or a database.
I've found many examples but none for what I'm looking for.
I understand that I need a ContextLogin, a custom CallbackHandler and a LoginModule.
I found something, and it works partially with an embedded LDAP.
With an external LDAP does not work. It says user "failed to be authenticated".
I've added an provider on weblogic via the console, I see the user bringed from LDAP but...the rest...

I think i need another LoginModule different from UsernamePasswordLoginModule.

Can you give me more traks to follow?

Thanks alot.

Best regards,
