Subject Re: [users@httpd] Authentication/Authorization using HTTP Server
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 01:37:51 GMT
Well i did try to access the link, but
the page did not come up.
I did find that there are modules for mysql & postgresql, but the
application is running using oracle 10g.
Authentication would be implemented in httpd by using custom made php
we need to eliminate the weblogic from authen/authoriz and have them in
httpd & db.
hope this helps..
