for quite some time I'm maintaining an RCP application (in other words a desktop application) that is doing its authentication to a SOAP WebService (Glassfish 2.1 - I hate this one, though, but don't had the chance yet, to replace it) via a simple extension of the Authentication class, using server side Basic Authentication.
Now I decided, that it would be nice to create a proof of concept for a Web Application - and since I'm used to SWT/RCP, I thought RWT/RAP would be the fastest approach.
I'm aware of all the FileUpload and -Download stuff and have already studied the FAQ, but the FAQ is a little thin when it comes to the security stuff, so right now I have now idea how to create some kind of a Login mechanism.
I already have a running RAP prototype with session model and - before the workbench is created - a Login-Dialog is presented, but I don't know how to integrate the credentials from the dialog into a valid SOAP WebService call, which I can use to check, if the credentials are correct.
Can you give me some advice, please?
If the information I gave to you, where a wee bit thin, please aks for more. Everytime when I create a thread I'm uncertain if all the needed information ar included in my questions and statements.
Thank you very much!
