Newbie trying to understand
Been reading the docs over and over, but I don't understand how and where the SecureContext and related objects are created and put into "a well-known" location. I understand there is a Filter implementation for this but how do you create the secure context and put it into location wellknown yourself?
The following usecase is wanted:
A view with a username and password is shown to the user. A LoginController's onSubmit() method should then take these two, compare the to a batabase, assemble an implementation of AuthenticationDao and put it in HttpSession or what it is it should do here
I'm completely lost here, and it feels that I'm trying to make it more complicated than it really is. At this stage I need to understand mora than just using HTTP Session Authentication or HTTP Basic Authentication, because my LoginFormController have to be able to perform other tasks.
Could someone help me pls? Relevant Controller code would be good, I fell that Acegi sample app doesn't give much information on this first crucial step (the un/pwd thing)
