Here is my thought base on the yesterday discussion.
1) I will implement a backend authentication service (with cerficate and
LDAP) which use Gama standard web service interface.
2) We need develop a AuthenticationManager(or some another name) which is
the client of Gama service and provide an API for kepler code to access
Gama service. The API maybe will look like:
String getProxy(String userDNName, String password);
void destoryProxy(String userDNName, String password);
String renewPoxy(String userDNName, String password);
I am not sure if we need user management API here( creatUser, deleteUser).
3) You may implement a login GUI which will call the AuthenticationManager
API to get user proxy.
This is very rough thought, any comment will be appreciated.
