Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1602) Switching from Tomcat causes error in JAAS module: "Unable to instantiate login module"
Date Mon, 07 Aug 2006 23:27:15 GMT

Aaron Mulder commented on GERONIMO-1602:

The issue that David Jencks was talking about was resolved in Geronimo 1.1.  But I'm not sure
how adding the classes to the web application will help make them available to the security
realm.  Karsten, can you confirm whether you still have a problem in Geronimo 1.1?

work and the startup-servlet works as well)

fine in Tomcat.
