Subject [jira] [Created] (TOMEE-1487) CDI Event based realm
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2015 16:20:35 GMT
Jean-Louis MONTEIRO created TOMEE-1487:

             Summary: CDI Event based realm
                 Key: TOMEE-1487
             Project: TomEE
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jean-Louis MONTEIRO

It's sometimes required to reuse a business logic layer to authenticate a user. Let's say
a JPA set of entities and business logic to connect to a backend.

In order to avoid putting all the app in the container, we created the LazyRealm (which is
also a CDI enabler) so that you can provide the realm in your webapp.

It's fine, but then, it requires the user to always create a realm wrapper to which the LazyRealm
can delegate to. The wrapper can get business beans and delegate the authentication.

It could be better to instead have a generic CDI realm firing CDI events so that the webapp
can react and do the authentication.
