Inject the shibboleth.HttpServletRequest bean into your object,
All action beans that inherit from our classes, including that base class, have a property for it predefined.

No, that's not authentication.

External and Password are different, unrelated login flows, they don't compose. Password is for password validation with the IdP's UI to handle collecting it, and External is for "do whatever you want in a servlet" and you are responsible for the UI. Two different things.
