Populating bean after form based authentication
Posted on 2004-08-06
I'm using Tomcat 5 with form authentication tied to a mySQL database.
I can get the user logged in and also protect things using roles.
The problem is, there are other things, such as user preferences, address info, etc that I want to put in a Session Bean.
I'm not exactly sure how to make this happen...
Do i need to use some sort of custom authentication to make this happen?
If so, can I still use the container managed security at all?
Are there any examples of doing this?
