Subject RE: Possible to expose a Tomcat Realm instance through JNDI ?
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 15:43:23 GMT
I don't think there is a HTTP Basic authentication realm. The authentication type is declared
in the <auth-method> of your web.xml and can be used in conjunction with a number of
different realm implementations.

Exactly what do you mean by re-use? Does this mean you are doing authentication from within
your web app?

Subject: Possible to expose a Tomcat Realm instance through JNDI ?

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 ?
