So, If I'm following you right, I should place the CustomRealm.class, somewhere in Tomcat's classpath, right?

a week went by....

I still can't figure out what's wrong with my configuration. I'll take the chance of appearing stupid, and ask the stupid question:
The class I'm implementing is actually part of the servlet. Should I make it a "library" class for Apache?

Thanks for the reply.

I put a breakpoint at the constructor of my class and never get there, so i suspect something in the configuration is broken, which i cannot see. Or, am I missing something else?

Hi,

I'm trying to customize the way authentication is done.
I created a class, overriding JDBCRealm which delegates all calls to JDBCRealm. When using it in my server.xml file, I get some annoying exceptions and TOMCAT won't start.

What am I missing??


Thanks.

I use Tomcat 5.5, with eclipse.

the exceptions:
