Subject: extending the Catalina Realm login
Date: Fri, 15 Apr 2005 09:21:17 +0000

I'm working on a school project which requires a little bit more authentication 
than the standard JDBC Realm server/container model and I'd like to add a method 
or two to the Realm login.

I have found a JSP that seems to write the form that the login uses....   but I 
can't seem to find the servlet it runs.   I'm assuming I'd need to replace a 
.jar file.

Here's a snippet of the sample logon:
<title>Login Page for Examples</title>
<body bgcolor="white">
<form method="POST" action='<%= response.encodeURL("j_security_check") %>

Where is j_security_check ?

Can any one tell me what classes or packages need to be worked on??

What I want to do is add a method to set an authentication flag after a user 
logs in.   I want a single sign in and also want to know that a user has been 
authenticated individually.  I was thinking of setting the flag in the User 
Table as a Boolean column, then I'd have the user name, UID, and boolean flag to 
use in the applications.

I have looked a little at JAAS, but it seems like too much and I also can not 
add an LDAP server.
