  • Authentication using login info. from another webapp

    Hello everybody, I've got a problem regarding authentication that I need help with.
    We have built a brand new webapp using Spring 2.5.5 and Spring Sec. 2.0. It uses form-login as the authentication mechanism. Everything works well with form-login and I am pleased with it.

    Unfortunately, this is not enough I am faced with a new requirement that needs to support using login information from another old legacy webapp. The idea is that while a user is in the legacy webapp if they click on a link pointing to the new webapp, I should be able to use their login information from the legacy webapp to authenticate them into the new webapp.

    My question is how do I go about approaching this task? What authentication mechanism is best for this? If somebody could point me to a simple example that works with Spring sec 2.0 than that would be ideal.

    Thank you.
