    • Method Detail

      • attemptAuthentication

        java.util.Collection<? extends GrantedAuthority> attemptAuthentication​(java.lang.String username,
                                                                               java.lang.String password)
                                                                        throws RemoteAuthenticationException
        Attempts to authenticate the remote client using the presented username and password. If authentication is successful, a collection of GrantedAuthority objects 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.
        all of the granted authorities the specified username and password have access to.
        RemoteAuthenticationException - if the authentication failed.
