Subject Re: How to deploy customized realm, authenticator, etc.?

Thanks Yoav.

I'd like it to be as simple as dropping a WAR file into webapps 
directory. But in my case, I'll have to drop something else into either 
common/lib or server/lib if not using a customized ClassLoader, right?

Also, putting them into common/lib didn't seem to work because my 
customized realm, authenticator use classes from Catalina, which is not 
available at common ClassLoader level.

If I'm going to use customized ClassLoader, how am I going to do it? I 
mean, if I do it on the Catalina side, that means some customized stuff 
needs to go into common or server, right? And I'd assume I can't use 
ClassLoader on the webapp side to load customized realm and 
authenticator, can I?

Sorry I'm not too familiar with ClassLoader stuff ...
