Are there may be deployment examples that is opened information about how to?
Or just say a few words about your experience for these services.
Thank you!

Swing is UI, or the 'view' in MVC lingo. As such there are no built in mechanisms for authentication.

How are you connecting to your DB? Is it a standalone application or a distributed one? If it is a standalone, you might have to build your own authentication layer. If it is distributed, you might be able to piggy back on some existing framework i.e. server side authentication.

I don't know how it to say.
it's a little scheme:


If it is a standalone, you might have to build your own authentication layer. If it is distributed, you might be able to piggy back on some existing framework i.e. server side authentication.


Which of them support encryption of password that sent throught the network?

And another JAAS it's only for web applications?
