1. Is it for web applications deployed on the weblogic server ? If so, then I think we need to configure the web.xml file to set roles, security-constraints, etc, why use LDAP ?
2. is it for login to weblogic console ?
no idea what this authentication is exactly for ?
Can you first be specific about what these users are. Are they the users who will access the WL admin console, or users who access some j2ee applications deployed on WL ?
where does the authentication happen ?
Finally , could you explain bit about what common mechanism an application use for those login screen ? does it use LDAP ??
1) how do you tell WL server if a user is for admin console or for a application ? How do you tell WL which specific application the user is set for ??
In an application's login screen I would like to create 10 users and corresponding password. According to what you said, I need to configure these 10 users via WL server console ?
