Hi Ranchers, I am using basic authentication. The user enters correct user_id and password once, and as long his session does not expire, he remains "validated" to access the protected resources.
Now, in one of my JSPs/servlets,I want to get access the userId field for some database query. Does tomcat or other containers would store the user_id field (entered by user during authentication) somewhere in session, so that I can access it from JSP pages?

I think that HttpServletRequest.getUserPrincipal().getName() solves your problem.
