Subject Integrating with JDBCRealm
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 02:13:57 GMT


I am able to get JDBCRealm working in my app.

However, I also like to create a "login" form
that posts to my own servlet instead of
j_security_check.  This allows me to manually
authenticate the user, and sends him on to the
appropriate "home" page depending on his role.

What's the best way of doing this in Tomcat?
Can I hook in to Tomcat's Authenticator and
JDBCRealm?  Or do I need to extend them and
write my own?  I'd like to have both systems
work together, i.e. if a user authenticates via
my servlet then I do not want Tomcat's container
managed authentication to kick in.

I'm running Tomcat version 4.0.3.
