hi all,

i would like to know how to override tomcat jdbc realm to read my authentication table to get the appropriate info.

jdbc realm expects 3 tables, user, role and user_role and the passwords are not encrypted. i have my own table and the passwords are encrypted. how do i change tomcat jdbc realm to read my table and encrpyt the incoming password and do the comparision. can i inherit the realm classes and if so which method to override.

thanks.

The things you should do is configure the server.xml, no need to inherif the realm classess and override method.

As I know jdbc realm only expects 2 tables, user and user_role.

You can change <Realm> in server.xml to connect to ur own database, as well as encrpty the password.

Here is the references,

For server.xml configuration,
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/realm-howto.html#JDBCRealm


For password encrption,
See "Digested password" section under the same page.

kotan,

"You can change <Realm> in server.xml to connect to ur own database, as well as encrpty the password."

Suggest that i have to use tomcat's encryption. which is not what i want.

Anyway i got it working last night by inheriting the realm classes and override -ed the authenticate method and it is all good now.

thanks.

ahuen: since you were able to solve this on your own, you should probably delete it or request it to be PAQd.  So you can save your points for other help if you require it in the future :-)

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

"To be PAQd/Points refunded."
