This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am trying to implement form based authentication using DatabaseServerLoginModule using jboss 6.0
By referring guides and several tutorials I implemented and configured it. My application is working till authentication phase.
Authorization fails giving following errors in logs. Here are my logs
Here is my Databse called book having following structure
values of "PrincipalID" and "Password" are "sidd" and "pass".
values "PrincipalID" "Role" "RoleGroup" are "sidd" "WebAppUser" "WebAppUser"
My web.xml is as follows
login-config.xml has following entry
jboss-web.xml has folliwng
Even if I remove
<policy-module code="org.jboss.security.authorization.modules.DelegatingAuthorizationModule" flag="required"/>
from login-config.xml, I get the same error.
As per the logs, user "sidd" is getting authenticated successfully. But on GUI i see
HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied
type Status report
message Access to the requested resource has been denied
description Access to the specified resource (Access to the requested resource has been denied) has been forbidden.
Am i missing on any flag or any configuration ?

After analyzing about the status code I learn t that Tomact will return such message if proper role is not getting retrieved from the database.
Considering I have made mistake somewhere(might be a simple spelling mistake too) I gave one more try by trying everything from scratch.
Login module is working fine.
# 11:18:53,272 TRACE [org.jboss.security.plugins.authorization.JBossAuthorizationC
# ontext] Control flag for entryrg.jboss.security.authorization.config.Authoriza
# 11:18:53,287 TRACE [org.jboss.security.SecurityRolesAssociation] Setting threadl
I guess the above once are just trace messages and nothing to be worried about.
If you want user to land up in a different page to tell user that he has not having required role then you can specify separate page redirection as follows
