In our project we have implemented form based authentication. The
user-role-password information is in Plain text files. I have used custom
registry and the "com.ibm.websphere.security.FileRegistrySample" as the
reader for these text files. Websphere5.1 seems to be authenticating the user but afterwards, the call to request.getUserPrincipal() returns null. Also the call to request.getAuthType() returns null whereas I have set it to
"FORM". Please tell what may be going wrong. Eagerly waiting for a reply.
Gravity is a harsh mistress. But this tiny ad is pretty easy to deal with:
