Subject Re: Is it possible to introduce new authentication method without modifying tomcat?
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2007 18:42:59 GMT
I will be first to admin that I may be silly bugger, but I can not  
see how JAASRealm can help me. Nowhere in the code I can see any  
indication of how to get to HTTP Request and HTTP Response from Realm  
code.

Please enlighten...

Andrei
