I am not sure if you are referring to the login-config entries in a web-app, or
to the way we add valves (which at the same time can be implemntors of
Authenticator). Either way, I do not see Servlet spec having any constraint.
Though the actual result is implementation specific, I noticed that the Schema
itself does not prevent a web-app from having multiple login-config entries. 
Please clarify.
