In our Application We are having an individual Servlet for each of the Functionality.
All these servlets were initially designed with out considering the aspect of Authorization.
Now we have a requirement to perform the Authorization for each of these servlets before the request for them is processed at server side.
To achive this I need to change all of my existing servlets to implement the authorization logic in them.
We are using the servlet engine 2.2 .. so we are not able to use the Filters Concept.
Is there any alternate way to do this with out changing all of the servlets?
Its a little old but the core concepts should still hold good

Thank you very much for the link provided.
But in our application we are already having an custom authentication mechanism using the TAM (Tivoli Access Manager).
So i can't write one more Authentication mechanism using this form based authentication.
Is there any way to Write Filter Kind of Functionality in Servlet 2.2 version?
