Example: Custom login module for inbound mapping

This sample shows a custom login module that creates a java.util.Hashtable hastable that is based on the specified NameCallback callback. The java.util.Hashtable hash table is added to the sharedState java.util.Map so that the WAS login modules can locate the information in the Hashtable.

Map sharedState, Map options)

// Custom login module development for a system login configuration.)
