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.

Anyone out there to help?

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 ?
