In the geronimo-web.xml file, there is a xml entry named
security-realm-name, which is used to specify which realm will be used
for the web application, it should be the gbean name of the realm.
It is, in my case, but that lists the 'generic' realm for my
application. But deploy time I would like that realm to be specific to
my deployed context.
Yes, there is also a xml entry named realm-name of the
login-config, AFAIK, it will only used to show on the popping logon
window of the browser.
Is that the realm-name of the web.xml you're referring to ? I've set
that to the 'generic' name as well. How can I get that to be context

When deploying a web app we create a security realm name (in the plan)
containing the context to which we deploy, e.g. secure-context1,
secure-context2. In the Geronimo console I can see all the realms
created, so that seems to be fine.
My web.xml (and geronimo-web.xml) contain 'secure' as (generic) realm
name, and that is what the browser reports when I connect.
Maybe a bigger question (for me) is: how does the security definition
in the plan.xml link back to the (geronimo-)web.xml or how can I link
my web.xml/geronimo-web.xml to the realms available ?
Thanks in advance.
