Web UI framework security - adding login pages

The Web UI Framework enables you to set up more than one login page. Login pages can be used for different organizations or other groupings of users. You also can set up a customized implementation of multiple login pages.

About this task

To add a login page, use the following procedure:


  1. Install the application with the Web UI Framework.
  2. Decide how you want to implement multiple login pages, using one of the following ways:
    • The default implementation provided in the Web UI Framework.

      If no customized login page provider is given, the default implementation reads the following web.xml file <context-param> parameters:

    • A customized implementation that is plugged into the Web UI Framework.
  3. For a customized implementation, specify your custom login page provider in web.xml using the scui-login-page-provider parameter.



    This provider will be accessed by the getLoginPage() method of ISCUILoginPageProvider. The custom implementation must use the interface contract defined in the ISCUILoginPageProvider class.

    To implement the customized Java™ code, build a JAR file that contains the Java class, and then install the JAR file using the install3rdparty.sh script. To implement this customization, rebuild the EAR or WAR file as you did during the installation, and then deploy the application on the application server.
