I need to perform authentication using Tomcat and JASS. The authentication itself (the check for the username and password) is ok, but I need to put some data into user session. I know this can be done using Filters but am thinking about something else. Does anyone know about some other way? Does anyone know how to get a reference to HttpRequest from inside the JAAS Api?
