Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0 and HTTP BASIC auth using LDAP (Netscape Directory Server)
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2001 17:30:49 GMT
You can probably use JNDIRealm to do this. However, there are a few issues
with the current implementation having to do with the password formats that
are supported. Basically, you have to have the passwords in the directory
stored as clear-text, or as a hash supported by Tomcat and if I remember
correctly the hash has to be stored as a hex string rather than a base64
encoded string.

I've tried it with Tomcat 4 in standalone mode and it works. I haven't tried
it with using Apache Web Server. I think if you use mod_webapp, it will
work.
