Subject Re: -security flag and (oracle) JDBC realms
Date Fri, 18 May 2001 22:37:17 GMT
It seems I'm answering my own questions.  I poked around a bit more
in the Tomcat/Catalina documentation and found stuff on realms that helped
a bit.

A symbolic link didn't work at all.  Makes sense I guess.  So I copied the
classes111.jar file from Oracle into the $CATALINA_HOME/server/lib directory.

I added the following to the catalina.policy file:

grant codeBase "file:${catalina.home}/server/-" {
    permission "localhost:1521", "connect";

And that did it.  Next I have to figure out how to seed (for now) my users
table with MD5 passwords.  Any help there would be welcome.
