  • Acegi and multiple/nested web apps?

    Well I don't know if the title is concise enough, but here is an explanation. I'm looking at an application which really is a collection of Spring based web appl, each configured in their own context. There should be a "framing" web app which bundles the other ones by presenting a frame with a menu to the left and the output from one web app in the main frame. And then there are EJBs underneath too... (not my choice)

    Now I want to use Acegi to take care of login/logout and security, but feel unsure on how to do this in this particular setup. Getting it to work with the "framing" web app was no problem, but how do I propagate the security state to the other apps? All input is welcome. And, I'm a nebie to be nice with me.

      Not a stupid question at all. There are many options for propagating credentials across multiple applications. One of the more prefered approaches is to use a Single Sign On Server which gives you a ticket and then you could pass this ticket across your applications which you would then verify against the SSO server.

          There are no such things as stupid questions. Only stupid answers. :-)

          CAS is the way to do it, as suggested already.
