public interface RemoteAuthenticationManager
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Attempts to authenticate the remote client using the presented username and password.
java.util.Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> attemptAuthentication(java.lang.String username, java.lang.String password) throws RemoteAuthenticationException
GrantedAuthorityobjects will be returned.
In order to maximise remoting protocol compatibility, a design decision was taken to operate with minimal arguments and return only the minimal amount of information required for remote clients to enable/disable relevant user interface commands etc. There is nothing preventing users from implementing their own equivalent package that works with more complex object types.
username- the username the remote client wishes to authenticate with.
password- the password the remote client wishes to authenticate with.
RemoteAuthenticationException- if the authentication failed.
