Hi there,
I'm new with Struts and I've got a couple of questions regarding user authentication and what is the best way to track their properties.
In the past I let the container authenticate the user trough a REALM, it worked fine, except for the fact that I had to make a second call to my database to retrieve the user details (address, postcode, etc.). The container in fact just told me about its role and username. But now I wonder if the same approach should be used with Struts framework, or if there's a better one.

This was the html code which I used:

Thanks in advance
