Basic Auth using Custom classes in Apache

Hi,

Right now we are using apache mod_ldap to authenticate the user against LDAP. When the user accesses a particular URL , the login box pops up and if correct credentials are entered the user is allowed in the site. The config for this exists in the apache httpd.conf file.



Instead of authenticating against LDAP, can I have a custom JAVA class or some jar file which takes the user credentials and authenticates against Oracle DB.

Lemme know how it can be done or any apache custom module is available.

Thanks in advance
