Hi, I am using WAS 5.0 and write a custom user registry for my own EAR file. But the problem is, with one installation of WAS, all other EAR applications installed will have to share this user registry implementation if they are to use standard J2EE security. This cause a lot of trouble for me because my user registry implementation have to take into account the security for Admin console and any other EAR file using standard J2EE security. Does any of you know how to configure WAS so that user registry for different node or server can be different too. Many thanks

Thanks very much Kyle. BTW, do you know how to get more information from the websphere internal servlet that handle security? I need a custom error page that display information about the failed user. For example "Your account is blocked after 3 successive login failure". At present, I find no way to get more information about the status of user, only success or failure.
