In tomcat server, we plan to implement form based authentication using JNDI realm (for our new project). Apart from user name and password, we require domain name from user.

Req object contains username, passwors and domain. Is it possible to retrieve domain value from req in realm class.

You'd have to create your realm implementation by extending JNDIRealm. Then you could grab the request (in either the hasUserDataPermission or hasResourcePermission methods), from which it should be possible to get all request parameters (assuming that "domain name" is a parameter passed in from the login form).
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
