    Custome Authenticators Defined At Web Application Level

    Darran Lofthouse Master

      I know that as custom authenticators are implemented as a valve they can be added to a context.xml deployed with the web application - however looking at the jboss-service.xml of the jboss-web.deployer I see the following comment: -

      You can configure a set of authenticators keyed by http-auth method used. This
      will apply the same set of authenticators across all web applications. You can
      override the set of authenticators at the web application level by adding
      <authenticators>
      element to the respective jboss-web.xml


      Looking through the dtds for jboss-web for 4.0, 4.2 and 5.0 I can't see if this is possible, also looking at the testsuite I have not seen any deployments that have deployed authenticators this way. Is this feature actually available? If so do we have any examples of how to use it?
