Subject RE: Still having problem retrieving user value from ISAPI Filter for authentication
Date Sun, 27 Jun 2010 22:02:28 GMT
Actually, I was able, with dB's help, to implement the Waffle product that he has suggested
to me and others who have posted on this list  and it worked very easily.

I would HIGHLY recommend Waffle for anyone who is using Tomcat and is looking for an Open
Source solution for authentication.

I appreciate all the time and help of those on this list over the last 2 months.

However, getting Waffle implemented was a much simpler process that using the Tomcat Connector.

Andre - I would have to take issue with your comment below about me not telling you everything
that I did to make the ISAPI filter work.

dB has been kind enough to offer his help in getting me setup.

you are doing something somewhere which you are not telling us.
Otherwise what you say you are doing should be working.
If the userid shows up in the isapi redirector log, then Tomcat is getting it, and you
should see it with getRemoteUser().
If you are not seeing it, then there is something else, not originally belonging to the
isapi redirector or Tomcat, which is overwriting it with a null.
If so, you will have the same issue with any authentication method.
