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?
