Implementing WebSphere Security Through LDAP

Lightweight Directory Authentication Protocol (LDAP) is often promoted as a means to leverage an organizational directory as a principal registry for WebSphere authentication and authorization. Advantages include the capability to configure single sign-on across application servers, enabling additional organizational applications, centralized user administration, multimastered replication across authentication sites, and flexible, extensible data formats - not to mention that LDAP is a vendor-neutral protocol and API backed by IETF. This begs the question of how to implement WebSphere security through LDAP. This two-part series presents a simplified example of how to configure WebSphere Application Server version 5.0 to use IBM Directory Server v5.1 as its user registry for J2EE application user authentication and role-based authorization. This registry enables the... (more)

Professional IBM WebSphere 5.0 Application Server

Professional IBM WebSphere 5.0 Application Server provides a perspective on the philosophy and rationale behind WebSphere Application Server, taking readers through the programming and deployment model and familiarizing them with the WebSphere Studio Application Developer tool set.

The following excerpt is from Chapter 10 on Enterprise Process Management and introduces the concept of Process Choreography as a mechanism for more efficiently creating, running, and changing business processes. In the early '90s, many companies invested in traditional client/server architectures by building fat-client applications with rich graphics that offloaded legacy-system processing time. Business Process Management Business Process Management (BPM) is about modelin... (more)
