I've asked about this before, but I haven't gotten any responses and the higher-ups are really starting to breathe down my neck on it. I need to use Tomcat and Active Directory (AD) logon credentials to restrict access to certain pages of my web site.
For example, I have a page that lists jobs that various businesses ask our college to post. I want to keep them in a database and write a JSP that generates an up-to-date list based on the database. I also want to write a back end for our Job Services Coordinator to enter jobs into the database using a web-based user interface. For obvious reasons, I need her to be the only one who can access that interface. Our college already has AD logons for all employees, so I'd like to leverage that to avoid her having to remember yet another user name and password. I feel certain that this can be done, but I have no idea how. Please point me in the direction of something helpful!
