How to bypass authentication done using Seam 2.2 and JBoss 5

Hi,

I am using following technologies to develop my application:
Seam 2.2
JBoss 5

The security configuration has been done Pages.xml and components.xml.

In Pages.xml following configuration is done :
login-view-id="/auth/login.jspx">
<page view-id="/*" login-required="true" /> // It will redirect all the request to login page if the user is not logged in.

In Components.xml following code is done:
<security:identity authenticate-method="#{authenticator.authenticate}" /> // This will go to authenticate method for authentication.

Now, I have to bypass the authentication for a specific page.

The requirement is : One other application will try to hit our application url to get access to One particular page. That page will be shown to them as readOnly page.
For this, I created one servlet and through that servlet trying to call one method in following class :

@Name("locationEditor")
@Scope(ScopeType.CONVERSATION)
public class LocationViewController implements Serializable {

}


While calling the above given class from the servlet, I am still getting the login page and getting following exception in console:

ERROR [[LocationSummaryServlet]] Servlet.service() for servlet LocationSummaryServlet threw exception
java.lang.IllegalStateException: No application context active

Please help me that how I can bypass login page for the requested servlet call.

Thanks in advance.
 
I can't beleive you just said that. Now I need to calm down with this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
