How would i go about login in to a restricted web page using jdbc realms through a servlet. I've got jdbc realms working fine but I'm looking to get the authentication from a servlet and passing it to tomcat. For example http://username assword@localhost:8080/restricted.html This would work in the servlet with a redirect but the password is clear to see. Any help would be great. Thanks

Use SSL. Since practically anything that is not encrypted are viewable by any in route servers.
