The package names of the security realm implementations have been renamed from com.iplanet.ias.security.auth.realm in Application Server 7 to com.sun.enterprise.security.auth.realm in Application Server 8.1. Custom realms written using the com.iplanet.* classes must be modified.
The com.sun.enterprise.security.AuthenticationStatus class has been removed.
The com.sun.enterprise.security.auth.login.PasswordLoginModule authenticate method implementation has changed as follows.
/** * Perform authentication decision. * <P> Note: AuthenticationStatus and AuthenticationStatusImpl * classes have been removed. * Method returns silently on success and returns a LoginException * on failure. * * @return void authenticate returns silently on successful authentication. * @throws LoginException on authentication failure. * */ abstract protected void authenticate() throws LoginException;
