Subject RE: Multiple databases for basic auth

If you do anonymous authentication and write a filter or valve that does the authentication,
you could do your own login screen and whatever you want in that area.

Subject: Multiple databases for basic auth

I am running Tomcat 4.1.
I have successfully configured the default basic auth to work with MSSQL

I have multiple clients.  Each one wants their own "User" database to
administer for themselves.  That is fine, but I can't seem to configure
Tomcat to respect a different User Database for each different app.  I
have messed with web.xml till I am blue in the face.  No such luck with
getting Tomcat to use any other database except for the server default.

I realize that Tomcat is different then Apache.  Since they both are
made by the same people, and Apache can easly do something simular, I
figure it can be achieved with Tomcat as well.  I can't control the
authentication with Apache since I am using a Linux box to access MSSQL
2000 with the Java drivers.

Can anyone offer some guidance here?

Any help in the matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
