Subject help using JDBCRealm - how to relate a realm with a security constraint
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2003 20:34:33 GMT

I am trying to set up security management for my web applications 
through JDBCRealm.

What i have done:
1. modify the server.xml file to add a Realm tag (<Realm 
className="org.apache.catalina.realm.JDBCRealm" debug="99" 
connectionName="root" connectionPassword="XXXX" 
driverName="" roleNameCol="role_name" 
userCredCol="user_password" userNameCol="user_name" 
userRoleTable="user_roles" userTable="users" />)

Database and corresponding tables exists

2. modify the web.xml to add a security-constraint tag ( 
			<web-resource-name>Area de pruebas de seguridad</web-resource-name>
		  <description>rol de administrador</description>

YYY is a role defined in the database

It doesn't work. So i want to know how to relate a realm declared within 
a context with the entries in the web.xml file in order to do the users 
of my web application to be authenticated against my -user, roles- database.
