Subject [jira] [Created] (RAMPART-397) Custom STS cannot load custom issuer
Date Sun, 04 Nov 2012 00:41:11 GMT
Brian Reinhold created RAMPART-397:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Custom STS cannot load custom issuer
                 Key: RAMPART-397
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAMPART-397
             Project: Rampart
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: rampart-trust
    Affects Versions: 1.6.2
         Environment: Windows7 32 & 64 Tomcat 28 and 30 Axis2/Rampart deployment
            Reporter: Brian Reinhold


A: Description of Problem
    When creating a custom STS service as instructed by the documentation at the site:
                  http://axis.apache.org/axis2/java/rampart/setting-up-sts.html
    and invoking the service, a 'class not found' exception is thrown. Therefore the token
dispatcher cannot
    call the issue() method of the custom token issuer.

B: Tests:
     If one performs all the tasks above and replaces the custom token issuer with the default
rahas token
     issuer, the default issuer is successfully loaded.

C: Addtional information:
    The documentation states to remove the rampart module. Those instructions are clearly
in error. It is
    assumed that the module to removed is the rahas.mar module.

D: Workaround:
    The approach I am taking requires the Rahas/Rampart source distribution. In this case
I implement my
    custom token issuer in the same impl package as the default token issuer. Then I modify
the rahas.mar
    file to point to my custom issuer. In my case I am writing an issuer for a SAML20 token
so I replaced
    that issuer. The new class file needs to be added to the rahas-1.6.2.jar in the axis2/webapps/lib
directory.

E: Remark:
    There is probably a simple step missing from the documentation preventing me from implementing
the
    custom issuer as intended. I also noted callbacks in the source code but I could not find
any 
    documentation on how to use them; though they may not be intended for applications.
