Islandora Drupal Servlet Filter
This is the servlet filter to permit the Fedora Commons repository software to authenticate against a Drupal database. Both FeSL (JAAS) and non-FeSL authentication schemes are supported with the same .jar file.
For help with configuring the Drupal filter see the servlet_filter_README.txt file in the Islandora download distribution.
Fedora requires a username for the audit trail so we populate a username of anonymous for empty user names.
The same version of the filter will work for both Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 Islandora installations.
This project uses Maven and specifies Fedora as a dependency. To build the servlet filter simply run the command:
To build for a specific version of Fedora, the
fedora.version parameter can be passed (defaults to 3.6.2), so to build for Fedora 3.7.1, you could call:
mvn package -Dfedora.version=3.7.1
This can take a few minutes as Maven will need to download and build Fedora before it can build the Drupal filter.
To remove traces of the build process, run:
target/ directory is in the
.gitignore file as it is bad practise to check binary files into Git that are created with a build process.
