              Hi!

Yes that is possible. You would have to create an inherited loginmodule that does the
actual authentication to Siteminder (similar to the first link below)

Hope this helps.

Thanks Thomas for commenting on JAAS.

Well I have gone thru above link .But Example has given with GlassFish server and they are implementing
"public class SiteMinderSam implements ServerAuthModule "
.
I am trying with JAAS LoginModule. where we jaas.config file for configuration.I have Jboss /Tomcat.
Is there any link like above which explains  JAAS imlementation with Site minder and using either Tomcat or  Jboss.
I have searched all over but could not found  JAAS with Site minder???

Really looking for it...
Thanks Again!!!

Thanks AGain for comment Thomas..
ALl above link "http://www.kopz.org/public/documents/tomcat/jaasintomcat.html" has use  
"public class HttpLoginModule implements LoginModule  "

1)This LoginModule implementation is for Sun's authentication  .Is that correct.
2)For Site Minder Will We use SiteMinder's logIn module???
Or We will have to Implement  sun Java's LoginModule only??(If so Then how will it get SiteMinders authentication behaviour)

Please confirm..
