Granting Programmatic Login Permission

The ProgrammaticLoginPermission permission is required to invoke the programmatic login mechanism for an application. This permission is not granted by default to deployed applications because this is not a standard J2SE mechanism.

To grant the required permission to the application, add the following to the instance_dir/config/server.policy file:

grant codeBase "file:jar_file_path" {

The jar_file_path is the path to the application's JAR file.

For more information about the server.policy file, see The server.policy File.
