All Implemented Interfaces:
Lifecycle, Realm
Direct Known Subclasses:
JDBCRealm, JNDIRealm, MemoryRealm

public abstract class RealmBase
extends java.lang.Object

start


public void start()
           throws LifecycleException
Prepare for the beginning of active use of the public methods of this component. This method should be called before any of the public methods of this component are utilized. It should also send a LifecycleEvent of type START_EVENT to any registered listeners.

Specified by:
start in interface Lifecycle

protected void log(java.lang.String message)
Log a message on the Logger associated with our Container (if any)

message - Message to be logged

log


protected void log(java.lang.String message,
                   java.lang.Throwable throwable)

Digest password using the algorithm especificied and convert the result to a corresponding hex string. If exception, the plain credentials string is returned

Parameters:
credentials - Password or other credentials to use in authenticating this username
algorithm - Algorithm used to do th digest

main


public static void main(java.lang.String[] args)
Digest password using the algorithm especificied and convert the result to a corresponding hex string. If exception, the plain credentials string is returned
