    Basic Authentication & DatabaseServerLoginModule

    David Mann Newbie

      I am perplexed by behavior when trying to configure BASIC http authentication using the DatabaseServerLoginModule.

      When using..
      <security-domain>java:/jaas/other</security-domain>
      with properties files, I get behavior as expected (browser pops up username/password dialog).

      When I move over to a DatabaseServerLoginModule policy configruation, browser pop up never shows. Logs set to TRACE for security packages look good..
      - XMLLoginConfig parsing the policy entry...
      - EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX log entry for linking security/securityMgr to the JNDI name..
      - Trace statements from DatabaseServerLoginModule all read fine.

      Yet no pop up, and we are always "Authenticating as unauthenticatedIdentity=nobody".

      What did I forget...

      Thanks
