Subject Propogate security
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2002 10:43:44 GMT
Hi all,

I'm trying to get a servlet running in Tomcat4.1.12
standalone to contact an Application Server
(JBoss3.0.3 /WebLogic 7) - [integrated TomCat is not
an option].

I authenticate ok in TomCat against LDAP before I can
access the Servlet.

The Servlet's JNDI Remote Lookup works (I found out
about the -nonaming switch in the archives, thanks for
that), but then I get a security authentication
exception in the app. server because "principal=null".

Has anyone had success propogating security to an
application server, such as JBoss?

I'm under the impression (from JBoss forums mainly)
that this cannot be done. Can someone confirm this?
