I am using weblogic 8.1 portal server. I had configured various LDAP authenticators for my user authentication but now I need to congihure the RDBMS authenticator for oracle and sql server2005.
It wud be very kind of you all if you could please help me in resolving this configuration related problem at the earliest.
I'm facing the same situation right now. Have to authenticate with RDBMSAuthenticator and MySQL, but don't know where to look for the configuration files so the method
login(form.getUser(), form.getPassword()); in my controller maps correctly to the fields in my DB. I found this document, but doesn't explain clearly how to set up this mapping.
Have you tried using a JDBC authenticator ? I have not worked with WL 8, but in 9 and above the concept of an authenticator exists which can define users / roles from different sources, including LDAP. Does that help ?
