HTTP Login Adapter

The login-service-adapter org.clazzes.login.adapter.http listens for providers of the DomainPasswordLoginService interface and exports them adapted as a HttpLoginService (see https://svn.clazzes.org/svn/util/trunk/http-util/src/main/java/org/clazzes/util/http/sec/HttpLoginService.java).

It is provided as an OSGi bundle, which may be activated by

obr:addurl http://maven.clazzes.org/repository.xml
obr:deploy http-login-adapter

The maven artifact is:

<groupId>org.clazzes.login</groupId>
<artifactId>http-login-adapter</artifactId>

URL of exported DomainPasswordLoginService/http-login/<login.mechanism>/login
<login.mechanism> beeing i.e. jaas from org.clazzes.login.jaasldap from org.clazzes.login.ldaphttp from org.clazzes.login.http.

Starting with version 1.2.0 of http-login-adapter, the timezone of the user logging in is determined via javascript and propagated to the server as the login time zone, when the configuration parameter doTimeZoneDetection=true is set. The login timezone may be queried using HttpLoginServer.getTimeZone() or ThreadLocalManager.getLoginTimeZone() when using HttpCheckLoginInterceptor of http-aop-util-1.2.0 or later

URL scheme and parameters

The login time zone and/or login local may be overwritten using URL parameters to the login service like in the following examples:

login URLremarks
/http-login/<login.mechanism>/login?tz=America/Los_Angeles
login with the browser's default locale and Los Angeles time zone
/http-login/<login.mechanism>/login?tz=GMT+01:00&locale=fr
login with a timezone with fixed offset and a french locale.
/http-login/<login.mechanism>/login?locale=fr-CA
login with a french canadian locale.

Testpad

There is a small testpad application to play with this adapter.

It is provided as an OSGi bundle, which may be activated by

obr:addurl http://maven.clazzes.org/repository.xml
obr:deploy http-login-testpad

The maven artifact is:

<groupId>org.clazzes.login</groupId>
<artifactId>http-login-testpad</artifactId>
