 'Spotlight on GlassFish 4.0.1' is a series of posts that highlights specific enhancements of the upcoming GlassFish 4.0.1 release. It could be a new feature, a fix, a behaviour change, a tip, etc.

#1 JDBC Realm for user authentication There has been some refactoring between GF 3.x and GF 4.0. One unfortunate consequence of that refactoring is that the JDBC Auth Realm package has changed between those 2 GF versions. This can cause some obvious issues when moving,  from GF 3.x to GF 4.0, an application using the JDBC Realm! GF 3.x was using com.sun.enterprise.security.auth.realm.jdbc.JDBCRealm while GF 4.0 is using  com.sun.enterprise.security.ee.auth.realm.jdbc.JDBCRealm GF 4.0.1 will fix this and revert back to the original com.sun.enterprise.security.auth.realm.jdbc.JDBCRealm package!

If you want to know more...

  • Check the original Jira ticket for some background
  • Read the JDBC Realm section of the Java EE Tutorial
  • Test it today using the latest version of this sample in the trunk of the Java EE Tutorial
You can also help us to test GF 4.0.1 more broadly via the FishCAT Program.
