Subject Re: Programmatic Authentication?

Hi Annie,

The authentication is completely separate from my example. In my 
example, I already assume that the user has authenticated itself 
succesfully to Tomcat (either through a frontend webserver like Apache 
or in Tomcat itself). The code in the example only deals with what you 
can do after that (i.e. assigning Permissions based on Principals in the 
Java security framework). The Filter is simply used to establish a 
security context in which the servlets are run.

In short, you should first get your authentication set up...
