I have a requirement to perform single signon for a HATS application running on WAS v8.5 on a Windows Server in an Active Directory forest. The user's Windows ID is the same as the RACF user ID, so I do not need a JDBC database to map network IDs to RACF IDs. I understand how WEL works and how to set up DCAS.
The part I have questions on is the WebSphere setup for this environment. Is there a tutorial, redpaper, redbook, etc. that can help me?
Also, when writing the WEL plug-in is it safe to assume that I can use a statement like:
String username = request.getUserPrincipal().getName();
Are there any special setup issues with WebSphere and/or the Active Directory to accomplish this?
As long as this environment has been available I'm certain that someone has written a plug-in for this environment, even if mapping the Windows ID to a RACF ID was required.
