Subject request for solution, form-based authentication and programmatic authentication, repost
Date Mon, 05 May 2003 18:47:00 GMT
I am developing a web application based on tomcat 4.0 and servlets.
The application utilizes the form-based authentication and JDBCRealm 

The authorization and authentication should work like this:

First-time users seeking access, submits a form containing requested 
user name, password and some personal information. This authorizes the 
user for later occations (sessions) and grants immediately access.  

User authorized on a prior occation (session) seeking access, submits a
login form. 

The latter function is handled by the form-based authentication 

I can not, however, see a solution for the first function. I.e how to
avoid that the first-time user submits a personal information form and
then submits a login form.

Is there any way to authenticate a user programmatically?
If not is there any other way at all?

In advance, thanks for any contributions,
Jarl Aanonsen
