    Hi,

    I connected Tomcat 5.5 and Apache Webserver together with mod_jk. My
    servlet calls are correctly transferred to Tomcat by Apache and if i
    address a servlet in a "secured" zone i'm prompted for a password
    (Form authentication in a Jdbcrealm in Tomcat). So far, so good. But i
    wonder if it is possible to configure Tomcat or Apache or both to
    share there realm, so the Tomcat authentication covers both Tomcat and
    Apache secured areas with 1 user/password database. Everything i found
    on the web covers the one case where the secured area is completely in
    a Tomcat webcontext.

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Bart.
