We have 3 non-ejb, non-web service J2EE applciations (3 WARs) that use Struts, Hibernate etc. WEe want to merge those applciaoitns in a way that they become one applciaiton, in fact they are...we jsut used seperation for diving the works to multiple teams. Many jars are common to them and we are planning to provide a common login and security service to those.
Would you like to mention an open source or commercial login service or some sort of service-oriented architecture (apache-avalon or hivemind is in our mind...though they are heavyweigts)? I am particularly interested about login service in a way that even these 3 applicatoins run in seperate JVM's of a same applcaiotn server (tomcat, resin or weblogic), they use the login as a common service.
Any lights please.
