Subject Re: Configuring Embedded Tomcat
Date Mon, 10 Jan 2011 14:28:07 GMT
It is specified there -- but I don't have a server.xml file set up.  Since
I'm using the embedded version, I set up the tomcat on the fly and just have
the java code start it.

I looked at the server.xml file that comes with the standard tomcat
installation, and I see the the UserDatabaseRealm portion.  Can I put that
into the web.xml file?  Or is there a way for me to enter that into the
embedded module?

I'm not sure on what to do here.  Right now it "works", but I'm trying to
get it so that I can have 2 different users and have them see 2 different
web apps.  I don't often do sys admin/configuration stuff, I'd rather be
coding (but I'm waiting for other people to finish up their portions, so I'm
adding in other niceties that I can get done before I can move on to the
next big part.)

I appreciate your help!

Thanks!

-- Chris
