Does anyone know if it is possible to enable ssl on a virtual web directory so that a servlet in one context will require username and password authentication, while another servlet in a different context will not require authentication at all.
Please help if possible - it's running tomcat on IIS.

Could be a little sticky, since the context is determined from the URL. That is, if two apps have the same virtual directory, they are in the same context.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
