Here is an overview of the issue:

        Key: JS2-55
    Summary: JAAS Authentication on Tomcat 5
       Type: New Feature

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

    Project: Jetspeed 2
 Components: 
             Security
   Versions:
             2.0-a1

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Ate Douma

    Created: Tue, 25 May 2004 3:26 PM
    Updated: Sat, 5 Jun 2004 10:16 AM
Environment: Tomcat 5.0.24, J2SE 1.4.2_03

Description:
As discussed on the Jetspeed developers mailinglist (thread starts with: http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/ReadMsg?listName=jetspeed-dev@jakarta.apache.org&msgNo=14605)
the new behaviour of Tomcat 5 to set the ContextClassLoader in the JAASRealm to the server
classloader prevents defining LoginModules within the context of an web app.

As a quick solution to this problem the Tomcat 5 JAASRealm is going to be patched to revert
back to the old Tomcat 4 handling.

The preferred solution is that the Tomcat Team would do this themselves or provide it as an
option. Someone should start discussing this with them....

I'll provide a patch implementing the quick fix which will depend on the user property catalina.version.major=5
to be enforced upon the catalina server: when this condition is true a patched version of
the Tomcat 5.0.24 JAASRealm.java revision 1.6 will be compiled into the $Tomcat/server/classes
directory.
