Subject RE: Sharing sessions across contexts?
Date Sat, 07 Oct 2000 03:01:43 GMT
Can the Form-based Login be active content from a servlet (as long as it
follows the spec of course), or is it only dynamic.  Just asking because of
the need to present the screen in both HTML and WML.

I forgot to mention that Tomcat 4.0 supports all four login methods
described in
the servlet spec:

* HTTP BASIC (from RFC2617)
* HTTP DIGEST (also from RFC2617, does not send passwords
  in cleartext across the network)
* Form-Based Login (from the servlet spec)
* SSL client certificate authentication
