Hello there,

I am trying to write a little web application which will allow users to log in, and enter or retrieve data from a database.

I am using Tomcat and MySQL

It is basically working, my java components can talk to the database and I am using the JDBC realm in Tomcat for security. So I have a users and a user_roles table in the Database and Tomcat uses this to authenticate.

My question/problem is how to know which user has logged on. I would have thought this would be a session attribute but it doesn't seem to be.
Can you help?

Hi,

HttpServletRequest contains methods for programmatic security - getRemoteUser(), isUserInRole(), etc.
