Subject Authentication from the browser
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2009 17:22:36 GMT
I implemented a servlet and deployed it in Tomcat 6.0. The servlet is
secured using Tomcat authentication mechanism which reads user credentials
from the conf/users.xml file.

We have a customer who would like to put a link on a web page (hosted by
their server) which will invoke the servlet (hosted on our Tomcat server).
We would also like to continue using the existing authentication mechanism.

So, the question is how can we configure the customer environment, the link
or my Tomcat server to allow authentication to happen without requiring the
end-user to type in the user name and password?
Can we implement link authentication using JavaScript to set HTTP headers?
