Federated repositories on WAS 7

Hi all,

I need to configure my application to work with Websphere 7.0 container managed security and wish someone can help me out with this task.

Here's a summary of my problem: part of my app's users must be authenticated against an Active Directory, in which their logins and passwords are stored, and another part must be authenticated against a relational database. For both cases, the roles needed for authorization are stored in this same database.

Briefly, I need two different repositories (LDAP and DB) working in a complementary (authentication happens on one OR another) and integrated (login/password and roles retrieved from different sources) way.

After some searching, it seems I need to configure a Federated Repository and use some VMM adapters (PER and ERM).

Can you give me a sign whether I'm on the good path or not? It feels like a painful job...

Could you not manage the same by writing a custom repository? We do just that for LDAP authentication backed by DB roles.
