Interface AuthenticationProviderMBean

All Superinterfaces:
weblogic.descriptor.DescriptorBean, ProviderMBean, weblogic.descriptor.SettableBean,
All Known Subinterfaces:
AuthenticatorMBean, IdentityAsserterMBean, ServletAuthenticationFilterMBean

public interface AuthenticationProviderMBean
extends ProviderMBean

The base MBean for all MBean implementations that manage Authentication providers. If your Authentication provider uses the WebLogic Security SSPI to provide login services, then your MBean must extend If your Authentication provider uses the WebLogic Security SSPI to provide identity-assertion services, then your MBean must extend

Deprecation of MBeanHome and Type-Safe Interfaces

In addition to being used as a base class that provides functionality to security provider MBeans, JMX applications can use this class directly as a type-safe interface. When used as a type-safe interface, a JMX application imports this class and accesses it through As of 9.0, the MBeanHome interface and all type-safe interfaces for WebLogic Server MBeans are deprecated. Instead, JMX applications that interact with WebLogic Server MBeans should use standard JMX design patterns in which clients use the interface to discover MBeans, attributes, and attribute types at runtime.
