Security Contraints setup..

Hi,

Im trying to setup a security realm so that the user can log in via HTTP Authentication.
Im running two machines one with tomcat 5.0(on Windows) and the other one with tomcat 4.1(on Unix)

I have setup the web.xml, tomcat_users and server.xml file
but i dont seem to be able to get it to work on the Unix machine.
The same configuration works fine on my windows box.

Could you please look at this configuration and let me know if i am doing something wrong..
thanks.. (Please note that this works on the windows machine but not on the unix machine)

The Server.xml files are not quite the same, is this where my problem is? I have posted both server.xml files for windows and unix and hopefully someone can spot the problem. All the other files web.xml, tomcat-users are the same on both platforms(Also note tomcat on windows is 5.0 and on unix is 4.1)

web.xml



tomcat-users.xml




Server.xml (On Unix)




Server.xml on Windows

You don't have a <security-role> element; maybe TC 4.1 needs that.

Hi,

I added the security-role and it seems to have solved the problem. Thanks for that..

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
