Hi, I am looking to port my application from Weblogic 7.1 to JBOSS 3.2.x. And I am facing issues with Security Realm configuration on JBOSS. The application uses Form based authentication and fetches the groups and roles from LDAP. In Weblogic, the security realm is created using an iPlanet Authenticator and all users are then authenticated throug LDAP (including the user who starts the server).

I am not able to map the Security Realm Parameters from WLS to JBOSS and seek some help. The details of LDAP setting in WLS are:

Hostname: abc.myhost.com
Port: 389
Principal: cn=Directory Manager
Credentials: password

User Object class: person
User name attribute: uid
User Base DN: ou=people, o=myhost.com
All Users Filter: (uid=*)

Group Base DN: ou=groups, o=myhost.com
All Groups Filter: (cn=*)


Static Member DNAttribute: member

I am not sure how this maps to all the different attributes for LDAPLoginModule on JBOSS.

Any help is appreciated.
