Hi folks,
Please excuse the intrusion of a WebSphere guy here, but I would like to compare a feature between the two app servers.
Using Form Based authentication with WebLogic (7 or 6), do you have to enable a Single Sign On (sso) feature on the server ?
In webSphere, the form based mechanism does not work if the sso is not enabled....

Come on WebLogic gurus !
Don't tell me you've never implemented a form based login !!

You just do it. No extra config required. Just do what the servlet spec says - set the auth to FORM in web.xml and write the login form.
In WebLogic, Single Sign On between webapps is controled by the session cookie name (JSESSIONID). Those webapps that share the same cookie name participate in SSO with each other. I guess you could say they form some sort of "SSO group".
But it has nothing at all to do with how the auth is done (FORM vs BASIC).
