Subject Re: Re: [newbie] Authentication-context in the auth.-framework
Date Sat, 25 Oct 2003 14:59:19 GMT
Hello again,

now I know what is actually my problem. I tried to use <session:getxml context="authentication"
path="/authentication/ID"/> in an XSP-page. As far as I read in some posts, it is not supported
by XSP :(( So, how can I retrieve information from the session with my XSP-page? Are there
another possibilities?

><map:match pattern"start">
><map:act type="auth-loggedIn">  <!-- check authentication -->
><map:parameter name="handler" value="myhandler"/>
><map:act type="auth-protect">  <!-- give access to the context -->
><map:parameter name="handler" value="myhandler"/>
><map:generate src="getinfofromcontext.xml"/>
><map:transform src="session"/>
><map:transform src="toHTML"/>
