Subject RE: Multiple Authentication Methods?
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 03:15:50 GMT
I'm too lazy for all that. I was hoping it would amount a few extra
lines in some configuration file. Now I'm thinking I'll figure out a way
to lock it down in group policy or with some changes to the proxy

With sf, you still have to do a fair amount of work. You'll have to
write your own Realm in either case, but sf's dev version (in cvs) has
an interface called FlexibleRealmInterface that you can implement and
get access to the HttpServletRequest (which is otherwise unavailable in
Tomcat's Realm implementations).

Other than it actually being possible in sf, you also have the added
benefit of not being stuck on one version of Tomcat if you write your
own Realm.
