Subject Authentication when Tomcat is fronted by Apache
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2005 00:53:09 GMT
I have apache2 as my main web server.  I have configured it to pass all paths 
that begin with /famtree to them through to tomcat via the ajp connector 
(using jk_mod).

I am trying to get basic authentication working using the UserDatabase Realm.

I get the basic dialog box to appear so I can enter my username and password, 
but what ever I type it fails to authenticate when I hit theOK button..

Thinking about it, I have probably not configured jk_mod in my apache2 
configuration file to pass the authentication dialog data back to tomcat.

This is not mentioned in any documentation I have seen.  How do I do this?

[PS if I could use apache to authenticate before even getting as far as tomcat 
that would be better, but as far as I can see it only works if the url is 
translated into a an actual location and not passed on]
