Multiple Realm Possible?

Using MySQL 5.0 and Tomcat 5.5.20.

Currently I have:
1. Security Constraint on a folder (WebApps -> Protected).
2. Realm under server.xml so I can authenticate users listed in MySQL database.

Everything stated above still works fine, however, now I have another MySQL database (To Avoid Confustion lets call it PersonalDB) for which I have to write an application. For obvious reasons, I have to protect the application, so I decided to use security constraint to authenticate users.

Here is the problem:
1. The username and password are listed in the PersonalDB
2. I am already using a Realm for my first application
3. I am not sure if it's possible to add another Realm

I don't know how I can properly authenticate the users for my second application. Any help or information will be greatly appreciated.

I do not think configuration of multiple releams is possible , but you can always have a custom releam that would check the second database for authentication information if it doesnot find the required information in the first one.

You have to write your own relean , not customer.
Look in the tomcat homepage or google about custom releams for Tomcat.
