Hi All,
We are trying to build a Web App using JSP and Servlets. So I wanted to know if JSP frawework contains any security configurations which could do the job?? or is there any third party product which we can use.
I guess we could use LDAP directory for storing our username/passwords, but I was wondering about, how do others implement the authentication and authorisation in their web apps. Any help will be greatly apperciated.

To see j_security_check (key word for form-based authentication in Tomcat)
To see also JASS (authentification and authorization but i did not succeed to run the default sample )
With LDAP there is the ldapjdk.jar or ldap4.0.jar of netscape.
