In most enterprise application a user has to authentificate against the webserver, CDO application are not different in this aspect. So naturally CDO and Net4J provide a possibility to authentificate.

Server

Server configuration

If you are configuring your server using cdo-server.xml and providing authentification against a simple text file is as simple as uncommenting the following lines:

<acceptor type="tcp" listenAddr="0.0.0.0" port="2036">
  <negotiator type="challenge" description="/tmp/users.db"/>
</acceptor>

The value is the path to the user/password-File the authentification is done against. In this simple case the file is a Property-File and looks like this:

tom=myverysecretpassword

Client

IManagedContainer-Setup
