I have built a web based tool for my company to use using jsp. I currently have a login screen for login and password and need this login information to determine which data to display. However, since we are on an intranet when someone clicks on internet explorer, it prompts the user for their intranet login/password. Since my application is only available through the intranet I was wanting to pull my applications login from this IE login, so that users dont have to log in. However, I do need to actually use this variable to determine the proper data to display. Is this possible, and if so, does anyone have anywhere to point me for information.
I guess bottom line is that I want access to the IE login variable.
