Hi!

I�m using Apache Web Server 1.3 and Tomcat Servlet Server 4.x (Connection established).
Some directories on my web server are protected (htaccess). After the successful login the user will be redirected to my webapp.

How do I get the login parameters (login, password) of a user from the web server. I imagine that Apache passes the parameters to the servlet server in some way.

I might get these params like that way ...
request.getParameter(?);

Would be great if someone can help me!

Regards,
Robert.

check out the javadocs for HttpServletRequest.
There is a getRemoteUser method that will do what you need.

(or similar for your jdk)
