You may want to try doing that in a servlet filter if you can, since
then it would be applicable to any server and you wouldn't need
Geronimo or Tomcat specific settings (you'd just list the filter in
web.xml).  I'm not 100% sure that a filter has access to the headers
and session, but I would certainly assume so.
