Hi
Thank you for reading my post.
I do not know what exactly a realm or jass do , i read it but i does not understand it yet.
Here is my question :
What is best practice for authenticating users?
is it good to write a login page with a database and do all stuff myself ?
eg comparing , adding the session attribute ...
or it is better to use JAAS ? Realm (JDBCRealm) ...
if i use JAAs or realms what pros and what conz in bring me ?


Thanks again
