This code uses oracle as an authentication back end. It creates a new connection to the db and attempts to login. If successful it will then create an upper case User account with _ORACLE appended to the username.

My urls.py call:

from django.conf.urls.defaults import *

urlpatterns = patterns('',
   (r'^accounts/login/$', 'django.contrib.auth.views.login',
    {'template_name': 'login.html'}),
)

My setting.py specific settings:

AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = (
     'oracleauth.views.OracleAuthBackend',
)
LOGIN_URL = '/accounts/login/'
ORACLE_CONNECT = 'database-host:1521/database'
DEBUG=True
