Subject tomcat security authenticator
Date Thu, 28 Jun 2012 06:02:16 GMT

I need to use custom authenticator, because a part of application is
using container authentication, and unfortunately the usersernames in
realm conflicts with usernames in application database. :(

So I need, that if anibody is logged in to my application, then the
authenticator automatically authorizes when needed.

I think, if I replace the FormAuthenticator with an descendant, it'll
solve the problem.

To extend FormAuthenticator is simple, but how can I make Tomcat to use it?

Or it's a wrong idea?

Thanx for help.

Best regards,
