Not sure I understand your question correctly, if you mean that a generic name like "security" is used in the geronimo-web.xml for the realm name, and in the deployment time, you wish that the real security realm will be changed with the current web context name, I am afraid that it is impossible. might be other guys could have good ideas.
If your project is built with maven, I think that you might use placeholder in the xml file, maven plugin could help you to update those values while assembling the web application.

But deploy time I would like that realm to be specific to my deployed context.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.
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 specific ?
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.

How can I get a security realm name per deployed context ? We deploy several versions/instances of our software on the same Geronimo server, and want the browser to remember username/password per url.
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.
