Subject Possible to expose a Tomcat Realm instance through JNDI ?
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 15:20:33 GMT

In my web app, I'd like to re-use the (server-wide) Tomcat Realm that is 
already being used for HTTP Basic authentication but couldn't find a way 
how to get hold of the actual Realm instance.

I spent quite some time looking for a solution (complicated by the fact 
that most Google hits actually referred to the LDAP authentication 
realm) but found none. Is  there a "config-file-only" solution or do I 
need to dig into the Tomcat source code and come up with my own JNDI 
ObjectFactory to achieve this ?
