It is basically working, my java components can talk to the database and I am using the JDBC realm in Tomcat for security. So I have a users and a user_roles table in the Database and Tomcat uses this to authenticate.
My question/problem is how to know which user has logged on. I would have thought this would be a session attribute but it doesn't seem to be.
Can you help?
