I am new to JBoss and JAAS authentication.  If someone can help me in the following it will be of great help.

I want to validate my username and password from the database table and these values are captured via Java Swing standalone client.  I dont have a concept of Role, I just want to validate the usename and password. 

I have created my Loginmodule which implements javax.security.auth.spi.LoginModule and its login method will call my DAO class and will do the validation of the username  and password. And in the java swing client, I will get the username and password from the user.  and will create the LoginContext and will call the login method.  
In the client side jaas configuration file I configured my login module and in the server login-context.xml, I declared my security domain.

But how to link the sever side and client side? 
Where do I have to keep the LoginModule files in the client or server?  
What are all the configurations required in the client side?
What are all the configurations required in the server side?
Without the concept of Roles can we do the authentication using JAAS, if yes how?

There are somany examples/articles on declarative authetication, Is there any article or example available for complete programatic authetication  From a STAND ALONE client?

where should I start?  I am using JBOSS jboss-4.2.2.GA and cleint side java Swing

If someone can direct me to the right direction, it will be of great help...
