q1:i want to know how to automate users authentication from ldap data store rather than from the server realm?i know how to use ldap(openldap) and ofcourse the JNDI API but is there any mapping tool in the sun application server to the ldap DIT initial context and the searching controls , filters and so on to ease this process?

q2:using the "FORM" authentication in jsp file the action name must be j_security_check but this if i authenticate from the web server realm... what if i want to use different action that give me more control to compare user data with other data in a DB rather than typing all usernames and passwords in realm file?
