Subject JNDIRealm login failure
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2003 20:00:41 GMT
I have created a simple tomcat web app that uses a
JNDIRealm for authentication per the instructions in
the Tomcat 4.1 documentation.  When I start tomcat,
the login process for this web app works fine for a
few minutes or logins.

Eventually, I reach a state where the first login
always fails until I restart Tomcat.  Each failed
login results in the following error in the logs:
2003-01-06 14:33:35 JNDIRealm[Standalone]: Exception
performing authentication
javax.naming.CommunicationException.  Root exception
is Connection reset

If the user backs up and resubmits the login a second
time, it works with no additional log entries.

I have seen this on Tomcat 4.1.12 and now 4.1.18 with
BASIC or FORM based authentication.  I have searched
the web and mailing lists without a match.  The
platform is RedHat Linux 7.3 or 8.0 with Sun's SDK
1.4.1_01 installed.  Any ideas?
