So I decided to integrate it into the new webpage I'm building.
But I've got a few questions.
What I want to do is, using the JForum user database for authentication to other parts of my page.
So when the user registers on my page I will use the JForum registration page. His data will be stored in the JForum default table for that (jforum_users). As login page I will use also the JForum default login page.
My problem now is, how can I detect that someone who requests a non JForum page has logged in in JForum.
I don't want to change anything in the JForum source code, because I think it would complicate a JForum update or switching to JForum3 in the future.
I read the SSO part in your support-page but I think this is written for developers who want to replace your login system by their own.
Is it possible to disable the password encryption, so the user passwords will be stored into the jforum_users table in plaintext?
Ah one more thing, I saw some really bad translations in the German translation file of JForum.
I would translate it like that:
User.job = Beruf
User.from = Ort
maybe there is more to refactor, I haven't looked through the whole file
Both, my webpage (build in JSF and ICEfaces(AJAX framework)) and the JForum are running on the same JBOSS application server. I'm also using a PostgreSQL DB which is running on the same server.
I'm new to the J2EE world, so I don't know the JBOSS server very well.
I thought it would be faster using your login stuff than writing a complete new login system.
But after reading what you wrote I think I was wrong with that opinion.
So I will write my own login system and use the SSO function of JForum.
