I have a requirement where my application is hosted in Tomcat and where the authentication of the users has to be done using LDAP directory (SUN ONE Directory Server).

I have gone thro' the "Realm-Howto" of Tomcat Realms.

Could ne1 let me know how to make use of the Tomcat and LDAP . Or how to make use of some standard LDAP LoginModule which i can just use it as a pluggable component to authenticate the users (using JAAS perhaps).

Hoping for someone to help me with a solution..

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
