Description TerryZhou 2005-11-22 07:55:03 UTC
This is the bug from
the user group can't contain a attachment,so I fire this bug to attach the
patch.Bellow is the bug description I pasted here.

Regarding this mail,

  I have tested both tomcat admin app and MBean createJNDIRealm can't
create a realm successfully with Tomcat5.5.12. I have checked some code
and found a bug in creating an JNDIRealm. The signature of
createJNDIRealm in MBeanFactory.java is not enough, it only has one
parameter called parent, if we want to create an JNDIRealm through JMX,
we need another three parameters, they are
ConnectionURL,ConnectionName,ConnectionPassword.If we provide this
information, the JNDIRealm can be initialized correctly,so you can set
other attribute to the realm.
   Attachments are the patches for admin webapp and the MBeanFactory
modification with tc5.5.x, I have tested it, and it can work now,
  Another improvement is I add createJAASRealm in MBeanFactory for
tomcat source code didn't contain creating JAASRealm JMX API,so I add
it, it can work too.
  The above problem I haven't fire a bug in bugzilla, if it's necessary,
I can do it.

Revised patch.

Sorry for the build error of this patch, I have revised it and attached a new
When I wanted to write unit test for this patch, I couldn't find any jmx
related test cases, at the same time I failed to run testcases in
container/tester directory, is there any instruction for that?
