Subject Re: Configuring Embedded Tomcat
Date Fri, 07 Jan 2011 21:07:18 GMT
OK, so I'd need to add a Realm for the UserDatabaseRealm in either of the
spots you listed.  I'll probably use the file, so that I can adjust it if
need be.

Where do I put the tomcat-users.xml file, so that the Realm has
users/passwords?  Is there a way for me to tell the Embedded object where it
is, or will it look in a certain spot by default?

Thanks!
