Hi Mark,

To implement security across multiples applications (Struts or non 
Struts), you will have to rely on the container. The container is really 
the best way to go if you want to implement a cross applications sign-on.

Now, about your specific question, I guess we are missing some specifics 
to be able to answer. You will basically have all your login pages 
(L1,L2,L3... ) and I will assume that they all point to that central 
authentication component. Or do you call the component that does the 
authentication another way? Is it a web service? A post to a URL? And 
after that, this component will probably accept a parameter telling him 
where to redirect the user.

Which authentication component are you planning on using? We are using 
Get Access from Entrust, that has this single sign on and authentication 
capabilities is your product the same type of product?
