j_security_check isn't fed through filters





------- Additional Comments From j_t_bell@yahoo.com  2003-08-05 21:13 -------
Container extension methods are not a valid way of extending the model because 
they are not standardardized but are container specific.  What is needed is a 
means of extending security behaviour without being container specific. Filters 
could provide one means to do this.  

The standard itself is not clear on the point of whether filters should work 
with j_security_check.  In the long run the real problem is with the standard.  
The j_security_check mechanism is awkward and does not adequately address a 
number of needs.  Hopefully, someone will come up with something better soon.

In the meantime I am hoping that the servlet committee decides that filters 
should work with j_security_check so that I can write code that will be 
portable across containers.
