For our INTRANET webservice, we would like to authenticate users or
applications based on a specific ID and password. This will be same for all

the callers based on the id and password is enough? or is there a better
solution? do I need WSE at all for this?

like: 1) copy the WAR file to the correct location and set up the
server, 2) edit a sample configuration file (with the above
username/password section) to fit the user's needs and 3) use the

Any ideas? Do I really need to mess with JAAS? If so, are there any
tutorials dealing with JAAS and JBoss?

Thank you for your time!
