      Description

      Several properties in cas.properties will, in many deployments, differ only to reflect the hostname of the CAS server. Abstract this hostname out as a property, $

      {cas.host.name}, so that a deployer need only update that single property to achieve proper setting of cas.securityContext.serviceProperties.service , cas.securityContext.casProcessingFilterEntryPoint.loginUrl, and cas.securityContext.ticketValidator.casServerUrlPrefix , as in:

      # Security settings
      cas.securityContext.serviceProperties.service=http://${cas.host.name}

      /services/j_acegi_cas_security_check
      cas.securityContext.casProcessingFilterEntryPoint.loginUrl=http://$

      {cas.host.name}/login
      cas.securityContext.ticketValidator.casServerUrlPrefix=http://${cas.host.name}

      Consider also what to do about http vs https. Inventing a $

      {cas.httpOrHttps} might be worthwhile:


      # Security settings
      cas.securityContext.serviceProperties.service=${cas.httpOrHttps}

      ://$

      {cas.host.name}/services/j_acegi_cas_security_check
      cas.securityContext.casProcessingFilterEntryPoint.loginUrl=${cas.httpOrHttps}://${cas.host.name}

      /login
      cas.securityContext.ticketValidator.casServerUrlPrefix=$

      {cas.httpOrHttps}

      ://$

      {cas.host.name}

      Such that the cas.properties file could start with

      1. The host name of the CAS server
        cas.host.name=localhost
      1. Whether the CAS server is available over http (quick demo) or https (real usage).
      2. Should either have value 'http' or 'https'
        cas.httpOrHttps=http

      Cf. Virginia Tech's local CAS implementation, which benefits already from this abstraction: https://svn.middleware.vt.edu/svn/middleware/cas/cas-server/tags/cas-server-3.4.6/vt-cas-server-webapp/cas.properties.sample
