Subject Re: Tomcat Form Authentication that requires no password for third party SSO
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2011 22:54:00 GMT
There is a file called Authenticators.properties, in there it maps what 
you specify in web.xml, to a specific authenticator.
So you write your own authenticator, you add an entry into this file, 
change web.xml with your new auth-method

tc server does not come with something like this
