Subject BASIC auth question, simple example...
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2007 18:24:33 GMT
Hi, I'm a n00b so bare with me!

I've got Tomcat 5.5 installed on my machine to the default location
c:\Tomcat5.5

I'm trying to get a simple example of BASIC auth running and I'm not
having any luck.

I created the folder
C:\Tomcat5.5\webapps\security\
In there I have
C:\Tomcat5.5\webapps\security\index.html
with just a simple "Hello World"
and
C:\Tomcat5.5\webapps\security\WEB-INF\web.xml

In the web.xml file I have
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee
    http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd"
    version="2.4">

   <security-constraint>
      <web-resource-collection>
         <web-resource-name>Protected Area</web-resource-name>
	 <!-- Define the context-relative URL(s) to be protected -->
         <url-pattern>/security/*</url-pattern>
      </web-resource-collection>
      <auth-constraint>
         <!-- Anyone with one of the listed roles may access this area -->
	 <role-name>dau</role-name>
      </auth-constraint>
    </security-constraint>

    <!-- Default login configuration uses form-based authentication -->
	<login-config>
	  <auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
	  <realm-name>Example BASIC Authentication Area</realm-name>
	</login-config>

    <!-- Security roles referenced by this web application -->
    <security-role>
      <role-name>dau</role-name>
    </security-role>
</web-app>

and in the conf/tomcat-users.xml I added the dau role.
This is not working. When I run the page I'm taken to the Hello World
page, why am I not prompted for the password?

It has to be something simple!?

Thanks!
