tomcat authentication configuration
Posted on 2013-01-22
I am testing an application on my own pc and find that there are a few links from the soruce code are not displayed for me. I don't have the same problem when I run the application on the production server.
It seems to me the production server uses my windows login for authentication and grant me permission to these a few links on the web page, because when I try to open the web page, I am asked for userid and password. My login id is shown on the web page as well.
When I import the application under local tomcat and try to view the web page, I am not asked for my login. I find the login shown as "null" and these a few links are not displayed on the web page.
What is the easiest way to fix this issue? Thanks.
