Subject Re: Tomcat Authenticates to AD. How do I access AD variables?
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2003 00:51:18 GMT
All their data? Do you mean the attributes of the user as stored in Active 
Directory? If that is the case - tomcat (or any servlet container) doesn't 
provide this functionality. But you can "easily" look it up via some JNDI 
calls since you know the name of the user.
