Small correction there: it was in server/lib for tomcat 4.1.x, not

I doubt it was an oversight, as it takes some effort to drop a jar from
our distribution.  But I don't see much documentation for it.  And I
know the JAAS Realm and associated JAASMemoryLoginModule are still
present in the distribution.  I also know tomcat has been built on JDK
1.4 for a while now, so the absence of the jaas.jar would necessarily by
detected.  I'll investigate a bit more.  Thanks for bringing this up.
All you had to do is place jaas.jar in server/lib (or the jre/ext
directory I assume) ?
