Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9 Developer's Guide

ACC Security

The ACC is responsible for collecting authentication data such as the username and password and sending the collected data to the Application Server. The Application Server then processes the authentication data.

Authentication techniques are provided by the client container, and are not under the control of the application client component. The container integrates with the platform’s authentication system. When you execute a client application, it displays a login window and collects authentication data from the user. It also supports SSL (Secure Socket Layer)/IIOP if configured and when necessary; see Using RMI/IIOP Over SSL.

Application clients can use Programmatic Login.

For more information about security for application clients, see the Java EE 5 Specification, Section EE.9.7, “Java EE Application Client XML Schema.”
