--Currently, for authentication, I am making a authenticate call from my Intercepting filter to a AuthHelper class which then calls LDAP to authenticate. Do you think it is a --good idea to call LDAP directly from a Filter, or is it a better pattern to delegate this to a business service.
From my point of view, I'd rather declarative security, both on presentation tier and business tier, with the security domain stored in LDAP i.e.. Due to is part of server's set ups, I would show on deployment diagram rather than on component's one.
Do you agree with this proposal? Should I show LDAP on component diagram as well?
Thanks in advance¡
