I need to integrate a Single Sign On plugin and use it to authenticate to my custom web application which runs on tomcat application server. I tried JOSSO and even though their documentation is very well orgnanized I am missing the piece how to establish the integration on my web application level. For example how do I hook up my custom "Login" page to utilize thje SSO plugin to authenticate? FYI: I am not limited to JOSSO I can also use any other SSO plugin for tomcat.
I think it would really helpful is someone can get me on the right track in terms of how I need to modify my code? I know it has to do something with passing info via cookie and/or http header , but I am clueless how to make it happen form implementation perspective.
My web setup is as follows: tomcat 6.20 as a web server, java back-end, client is flash based (Flex).
