I have a requirement that goes as follows:
There would be a web-based application that would be built on weblogic application server. The web server would also be weblogic. The user would login into his NT machine and can then open the browser and type the URL to this web-based application. This applicaiton would only be accessible from intranet.
When the user types in the URL, there would be no login screen presented to the user. Instead, it is required that the user directly reaches the homepage of the application. Since, not all the users would have access to this application, there is a requirement to get this user's NT loginid and validate the same against the application users. I have been trying to use getRemoteUser() method in the request object but that always returns null. I think there would be some setting required at the web server level so that getRemoteUser() does not return null. Can anyone help please?
