Subject RE: How can I run one particular webapp as a different user?
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2008 20:12:50 GMT
Chris,
        Do you mean to say that every webapp is a separate thread? So
the userid for the Runtime.exec() would be the id of the user starting
the servlet conatiner (by running startup.sh)? Is there a place like a
catalina.policy or something where I can say "hey tomcat, this is userid
with which you should runall Runtime.exec() calls!".  :) (Too much to
ask ?? )

How would you do this on the command-line?
