Subject Tomcat 5.5: how doesone configure an authenticator valve?
Date Tue, 02 Nov 2010 11:49:33 GMT
I am trying to help someone with a Tomcat 5.5 implementation of waffle (
It has authenticator valve that works well with tc6.
I declare a valve inside the web app:


<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
  <Valve className="waffle.apache.NegotiateAuthenticator" principalFormat="fqn" roleFormat="both"
  <Realm className="waffle.apache.WindowsRealm" />


    <display-name>Waffle Security Constraint</display-name>
      <web-resource-name>Protected Area</web-resource-name>

I didn't modify anything in Tomcat's conf, but placed the JARs in the right place(s).

The Valve starts, but any request to the protected area doesn't invoke it. I get a 401 Access
Denied, but no headers added by the valve.

Any suggestions? Is this supposed to work with tc5.5 at all?
