JPam supports 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 at runtime. JPam final releases are compiled with -target 1.4. This produces Java class data, version 48.0.
JPam does not work with JDK1.2 or JDK1.1. JAAS is not available for these JDKs. Moreover, JNI used a different interface prior to JDK1.2.
IBM 22.214.171.124 JVM is known to work although it places its native libraries in a different place. Add -Dnative.java.library.path=/usr/lib/jvm/java-ibm/jre/bin (or wherever the IBM JVM is installed ) to your Java command line.
JPam requires commons-logging commons-logging is a very common dependency, and is therefore not included in the distribution.
Jpam also requires JAAS. Originally introduced as an optional package (JAAS 1.0) to version 1.3 of the Java 2 SDK, JAAS has now been integrated into the Java 2 SDK, version 1.4.
It has been reported that JPam relies on the presence of pam-devel-0.77-66.2 or similar RPMs.
JPam releases are placed in the central Maven repository.
The Maven snippet for JPam 1.0 is:
<dependency> <groupId>net.sf.jpam</groupId> <artifactId>jpam</artifactId> <version>1.0</version> </dependency>
