Subject Re: JDBCRealm always fails after using diff. CATALINA_BASE
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2001 22:17:14 GMT
I've been working at this all weekend.  Just checking to see if anybody 
out there's got any idea as to why this is happening...  thanks again!

UPDATED:  I turned OFF the JDBCRealm and used the MemoryRealm with 
tomcat-users.xml and login DOES authenticate.  Now why isn't the 
JDBCRealm?  It bothers me that there are no server log messages...  Is 
there a way for Tomcat to log all failed authentication requests?
