Externalized Tomcat Authenticators not compiled in

    Details

      Description

      It is possible to define external authenticators as described in:

      http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ExternalizeTomcatAuthenticators

      Step 2 of the configuration describes how to enable this by using an alternative configClass in the jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/server.xml:

      <!-- UNCOMMENT TO ENABLE CUSTOMIZATION OF TOMCAT AUTHENTICATORS
      <Host name="localhost"
      autoDeploy="false" deployOnStartup="false" deployXML="false"
      configClass="org.jboss.web.tomcat.security.config.JBossContextConfig">
      -->

      The problem is that the org.jboss.web.tomcat.security.config.JBossContextConfig class is not included in the build. At least not in the downloadable 4.0.4.CR2 release.

      I had to do a custom build to enable this; the class is specifically commented out in the tomcat build scripts.
