Whoa there big fella!

Thanks for the reply. There's a lot of information there, but on first read it does not mean a lot. I guess I will have to wait until I get into it and get my hands dirty a little. We are just in the quote phase. The good news is I don't think the app uses any of the components Tomcat does not support except for Javamail. I will need to find an addin to support it. The system only consists of 45 java modules and 25 jsp pages so it is not that large. Right now I am just trying to get enough info to accurately quote the effort.

Sorry about that. I actually put my first name in my signature. I am just so used to creating "company" accounts on boards like this so they can be easily shared among all of us. I have updated my profile.

Hello All.

I am new to Tomcat. I have been supporting an application running on WebLogic which uses getRemoteUser() to find the logged in user and allow access to the application. The client wants to migrate from WebLogic to Tomcat and have the users re-enter their credentials to access the application - eliminates walk-by users from using an unlocked desktop.

I see two issues here:
1. Authenticate the Tomcat instance to AD to authorize the application and allow inquiries.
2. Present entered credentials to AD for validation.

I realize this may be a trivial matter to a Tomcat SME, but I have never developed under this platform. Could someone point me to a Tomcat<->AD for dummies article or give me the basics? I am an experienced developer of many years and I should be able to follow it.

Also, other than case sensitivity issues (hit that already) does anyone know the gotchas I might encounter migrating from WebLogic?

Thanks.
Jerry
