Updated title and component; this applies to the appclient utility

Comment by Tim Quinn [ 08/May/13 ]

The "-name" option on the appclient command specifies the name of the app client to be executed (especially if there are multiple app clients in the EAR), not to tell what username to use for authentication.

The "-user" option is used for specifying the username on the command line.

Markus, can you please confirm whether you are actually using "-name" or "-user" in your example?

Sorry for the typos, I was in a hurry.

Actually I typed:

appclient -user myname -Client MyClient.jar

And the ACC's login dialog Shows the user Name field defautled to the value "MARKUS KARG" (which seems to be taken from active directory), but not "myname".

I am reassigning this to the security team.

The app client container invokes AppClientSecurityInfoImpl's constructor, passing the username (if the user provided one on the command line, null otherwise).

I looked around a little and it seems that ClientPasswordLoginModule interrogates the UsernamePasswordStore to retrieve a user-provided username and/or password but the code seems not to use those values (I concentrated on the username) in setting the default value in the callback.
