Keep looking around there.  I can't tell you where exactly anymore, but 
I was browsing that a few days ago and I remember seeing a place where 
they described what the table should be named, what the columns should 
be, etc..  (or else they are just talking there of the 
"tomcat-users.xml" file in the conf directory.)
Of course you can pick any name and password value you choose, as long 
as that user is given the appropriate role for your application (e.g. 
"manager" for the Manager application).


P.S. The above is all I think I know about this theme.
