Hi all,

Tomcat comes with the implementation 
of Form Based Realm authentication.
Form based authentication required a form with
username field (j_username) and password textfield (j_password).
It also enforce the form action must be j_security_check.
This limitation make the login form must be placed under
the site that authenticate the user.

Suppose I need to login to from
and the login form MUST be placed under
How to authenticate the user to from

Any one experienced with this problem?

Is there any way to call the FormAuthenticator.authenticate() method from
web application ?
