JNDIRealm in Tomcat 6.0

I got this working in Tomcat 5.5

<Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.JNDIRealm" debug="99"


I tried the same thing in Tomcat 6.0 but the authentication popup keeps coming and finally authentication fails. If i switch back to 5.5, it works perfectly. What could be the problem?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

I have no experience with this myself, but it's possible that Tomcat 6.0 needs a different way of configuring it than Tomcat 5.5.

Have a look at this in the documentation of Tomcay 6.0 and check if your configuration is correct: Apache Tomcat 6.0 - JNDIRealm
