Hi - 

I need to plug a customised authentication routine (written in Java) into Cyrus SASL.

Is this possible? And if so, what is the best way to accomplish this?

My current idea is to call my java code from the _sasl_checkpass() method, as per the docs. I'm certianly no expert in C, but I believe you can do this via JNI.

Thanks -
