Hi fellow java coders,

Im quit stuck with the following issue also a big noob on the subject. I have a simple web application and would like to add user authentication and authorization but im quit puzzled about how i should go about doing that.
What kinda ways are there?

Is using Java SaaS a good approach? Or should use a database like mysql that is often used in php tutorials?

In general users and passwords are saved in a database right?

Like to hear your view and insights.

You can research using the authentication built into the Servlets API, or you could explore 3rd-party options; for example, Shiro seems to be popular.
