    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
      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?
