By pure curiosity, why would you want that?

The validation happens in the start method of JNDIRealm :
// Validate that we can open our connection
        try {
        } catch (NamingException e) {
            throw new LifecycleException(sm.getString(""), e);

My first attempt was to override this method in a custom Class which
inherits from JNDIRealm. This obviously can't work short of rewriting
the complete call to super.start().

Or, but I didn't test nor do i know if it is good (or even valid)
java, you could try by overriding this method like that :

    public void start() throws LifecycleException {
