Using JDBCRealm - Need help

Hello everyone,

I'd like to know how I can use the JDBCRealm in my situation. Let me try to explain the tables I have:

- USERS: User, Password, UserGroup
- GROUPS: Group, Description
- MODULES: Module, name
- RIGHTS: UserGroup, Module, Edit, Insert, Delete, Print

I got this really nice tutorial: but still, it seems that it won't be useful for me because I need to store users and groups, not only users. My rights are defined by group (which means I will use the GROUPS table in the config) and I'll often need to retrieve the user from the session (and apparently this information won't be stored).

Does anyone know how I should do it with this kind of table structure?

Something else: What if I have my own encrypt algorithm and do not wanna use MD5, SHA or anything else?
