Subject Multiple authentication schemes within a webapp
Date Sat, 17 May 2008 10:49:23 GMT

I have a webapp that uses form based authentication but I'd like to  
also be able to login to it using basic authentication.  The main use  
case for this is to present a nice form based login for web users, not  
involving the standard browser's username/password prompt, but also  
allow people to include their username and password into the url for  
use in the likes of wget and other tools.

Can anyone give me recommendations on how to achieve this? As far as I  
can tell I can't have more than one login-config elements in the  
web.xml.  Would I need to implement a new Authenticator delegating to  
BasicAuthenticator and FormAuthenticator?

Thanks in advance for any advice,
