Subject Adding a Customized authenticator
Date Sat, 25 Feb 2006 21:00:35 GMT

I would like to extend the DigestAuthenticator class or BaseAuthenticator
and use that instead of the tomcat default. I have done that but I don't
know how to have it referenced in web.xml under security-constraint. Or
maybe in server.xml similar to the way you can create a customized Ream and
have it referenced in the server.xml as your custom realm.

Is there a <class-name> element I can add perhaps under security-constraint
I like to add something like this to let tomcat know that it should use this
for authentication instead..


I have this in my web.xml. 

	<realm-name>Server Realm</realm-name>

    <description>Authorized  Users Group</description>
