I am just now starting to work on equipping my WebKit-based intranet app
with user logins. My plan is to start with version 0.5.1rc3 and do whatever
is required to use UserKit like this:
(1) Allow any number of users to log in concurrently, up to some
configurable maximum (typically 20 or less).
(2) Allow a few designated users to log in at any time, regardless of (1).
(3) Make some use of 'roles' so that some users will have privileges that
I am not up to speed on using CVS, but I will make my solution as generic
and Webware-friendly as possible (i.e., no hacking of Webware internals, no
COBOL subroutines) and make it, plus some documentation, available to
Chuck, if that is OK.
One thing that I am worrying about but have not confronted directly yet is
how to handle ODBC logins. My best guess at the moment is that the 'user'
owning the app server would have its own login ID and password for ODBC
purposes, so the app would do all ODBC logins as itself on behalf of the
app users. I am assuming that each logged-in app user should have a
separate database connection. I am not using MiddleKit.
Best regards to all,
