Subject RE: FORM-based ldap authentication problem
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 17:15:07 GMT
I haven't tried to set up an LDAP authenticator in Tomcat, but shouldn't
you have to specify the attribute name for the uid?  You've specified
the pattern for the search DN, but I would assume you'd have to specify
"uid" separately somewhere.
