Add authentication to Application at later stage.

Hi,

I have a Web Dynpro application that is created with out an authentication(i.e., "Authentication" checkbox is not selected while creating app in NWDS)

Later I decided to add authentication. Can you guys please suggest me someway to add authentication at later stage? If not possible, are there any "clean" work arounds?

Thanks

    Kranthi,

    1. If you have access to sources (so update / build / re-deploy is possible) you may add "Authentication" in application properties at any time (double click in application, switch to "Application properties" tab, click "New", left "Pre-defined" selected and click "Browse" -- the rest is obvious)

    2. If you may not alter application, then you can use regular J2EE Web application that requires authentication. The app need only one servlet that enforces authentication and re-directs browser to WD application URL after user login.
