Subject Antwort: Re: Passive Requestor Profile WS-Federation contribution
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2011 10:05:52 GMT
Hi Mark

WS-Federation Passive Requestor Profile is part of the authentication
mechanism within a servlet engine/app server and not part of the web
(section 13)

Tomcat provides builtin support for Form based authentication and different
kind of authentication backends (Realms). The described solution is just
another way for authentication and authorization support (roles).

Do you agree?

Tomcat uses Bugzilla, not Jira but apart from that, that is the right

Based on a quick glance at Wikipedia, this looks like something that
belongs in a library that would be packaged with an application. On that
basis, it is unlikely to be included with Tomcat. It is prefectly
possible I have misunderstood the purpose of this so be sure so include
some info in the BZ ticket as to why it is a good idea to have this in
Tomcat by default.
