Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Developer's Guide


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 using the configured JavaTM Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) module.

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.
