AuthenticRoast is an open source project that works with the Java™ Authentication Service Provider Interface for Containers (JSR 196) to let you develop custom authentication modules for use with container-managed, declarative security. Joe Sam Shirah shows how AuthenticRoast can minimize configuration impact on Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) containers and greatly reduce coding effort for custom security requirements. A downloadable WAR with demonstration code is provided.
