This script authenticates only two users: "michael" and "eddie". The "user" and the "password" variables are bound by the ScriptLoginModule. The "groups" is the list of groups the user belongs to. Let's make it better. We are going to use an EJB. See example:

|How would you use this class to authenticate against Google or an LDAP server?
