Hi everyone just want to know if there is something in java for authentication like entering a username and password and reading and writing to a database?

Thanks,

Tim

There's a very generalized API called JAAS, though it may be overkill depending on your circumstances. In the context if web applications, there's servlet-based authentication which does what you describe, and can be hooked up to many sources of user information, including LDAP and relational databases. In the context of web services, there's WS-Security, which does something similar.
