Hi Stéphanie.

Maybe as an alternative..

If you mention Active Directory, does that mean that all your Tomcat 
users are working on MS Windows workstations, and login to a Windows 
domain before they call up the browser and access your Tomcat-based 
applications ?

I am asking because if that is the case, then there exist solutions 
which would allow your users to not even have to login (to your Tomcat 
applications), and will automatically use their Windows domain user-id 
for Tomcat.
And the management of users and passwords is then left to the AD system, 
and you get a Single-Sign-On solution at the same time.

This scenario may or may not fit your needs, but if it does, it may be a 
big simplification for you.
