Subject Re: Question about Life Cycle of Authenticator in Tomcat
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2007 16:41:11 GMT
Hi Peter,
I have implemented o.a.c.a.AuthenticatorBase but my question was related at knowing what happens
when an authenticator exits and returns true and/or false... I suppose that if "true" means
all ok and the user is authenticated but i wanted to be sure

You can implement you own auth strategie as a context Valve.

    <Valve className="xx.yyy.zzz" />

Your class must be  implement the o.a.c.Authenticator interface.  
Please, look at o.a.c.a.AuthenticatorBase  base auth class.
