Subject RE: How to get context realm from servlet and filter.
Date Fri, 15 Oct 2004 14:44:36 GMT
You can set your context to be privileged so that your login class in
WEB-INF\lib can access the \server\lib classes. But keep in mind anything
from your context can access tomcat's internal classes, so it is a security
risk.

<Context ... privileged="true">
