    Tomcat vs Jetty

    jimbrady Newbie

      I have been trying to add security to my web application using the tagish NT login module. It works perfectly under jboss-3.2.2RC2_jetty-4.2.11 but not with jboss-3.2.2RC1_tomcat-4.1.24.
      Under tomcat I get the login popup but it always rejects the credentials. Nothing appears in the Server log so I don't even know if the login module is being invoked. As far as I know all the setup is identical (the ear file and login-config.xml certainly are identical).
      Can anybody help? I would prefer to use Tomcat because I am using Sitemesh and it doesn't work currently for straight HTML under Jetty (but does under Tomcat). With Jetty there is at least a lousy workaround (rename all the HTML to JSP).

          Hi all !

          Anybody got a solution to this ??? I'm experiencing the same problems for a long time now. After checking jmx-console I always see that my security-domain is not registered under java:/jaas when using tomcat (with jetty everythings ok). I've added a log-category to log4j.xml, e.g.

          the relevant output is (at least that's what I think ;-))

          The last version I was able to get form-based authentication up and running was jboss-3.0.4-tomcat-4.0.6 (quite a while ago). Still no luck until currently used version jboss-3.2.2RC4. Maybe there's somebody out there, who can help, otherwise I'm stucked with jetty (not the worst choice ;-)).
