On my application server machine ,I have done drive mapping using specific user.
But with web application running on Tomcat I am not able to access this drive because tomcat runs as a windows service and not with user which has the actual access to drive mapped.
So i want know how to run web application on tomcat server with specific user.
Tomcat itself is an application and therefore it runs under a user ID of its own. Reckless people run it under an administrative/root user ID. Security-minded people create a special ID just for Tomcat.
Since Tomcat is a multi-user system it has to have security privileges that are the greatest common denominator of all the Tomcat users as used by the deployed webapps. Per-appuser environmental characteristics such as drive mappings are not possible, however because Tomcat doesn't attempt to virtualize an entire server OS.
