Java GSS is the java implementation of GSS-API as per RFC 2853, with a
java implementation of Kerberos. 

Currently Java GSS can only leverage Java Kerberos. There is interest 
that Java Kerberos applications should be able to use the native Kerberos
implementations. We cannot interface to native Kerberos library, the 
Kerberos API is not public. However GSS-API is public. We can bridge 
Java GSS-API to Native GSS-API, and hence allow java applications to 
leverage native Kerberos implementation.

We need to add a JNI provider that would interface to the native 
GSS-API using the native GSS library.

Currently this scope of this RFE is for providing native GSS support 
for Solaris only.

EVALUATION Need to add support for native GSS. ###@###.### 2004-11-30 21:05:50 GMT
