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: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-3.3-doc/JDBCRealm-howto.html 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?

If I was you I'd write my own implementation of a javax.security.auth.spi
LoginModule.

If you want some simple examples to mess about with and get some ideas of what to do look at these http://free.tagish.net/jaas/index.jsp.

Hope that's enough to get you started
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
