Subject Declarative security in context?
Date Wed, 17 Nov 2004 21:58:23 GMT

I want to deploy multiple instances of the same webapp, with different 
authorization rules. However, declarative security is done in the 
web.xml of which there will only be one copy (referred by multiple 
contexts). Is it possible to impose security constraints on a web app 
from the outside, i.e. declaring them in the context rather than in the 
web.xml?  Ideally I'd like to be able to "shadow" parts of the web.xml 
on a per context basis, but I can't see how to do that. Would I have to 
write a valve to do custom authorization?
