    Cant authenticate against jaas when set up through a context

    Christian Nelsen Newbie

      I wanted to expose a specific directory on my system to the web and found a way to do it by adding a Context element into my server.xml.

      <Context path="/mylogs" docBase="c:\Logs" debug="99" eloadable="false">
       <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" prefix="access." suffix=".log" pattern="common"/>
      </Context>


      which works fine, http://localhost:8080/mylogs gives me a directory listing.

      However, when I try to secure it with the same security I have on my jmx-console it doesn't authenticate against the jaas plugin that is used in the jmx-console.

      To simplify things I simply copied the WEB-INF directory from the jmx-console.war file and added it to my C:\Logs without modifying any of the values.
      It prompts me for a username password but never authenticates it against the java:jaas/jmx-console security.
      Because this isn't a standard war file that would be placed in the deploy directory it doesn't seem to use the same steps to authenticate. Does anybody know what I'm missing here?

      Thanks
