With the latest developpement versions (see the cvs tree directly for the
sources), a new way of doing authentication is to use the new acl API.
See org.w3c.jigsaw.acl package taken from the cvs server.
http://dev.w3.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/java/classes/org/w3c/jigsaw/acl/
AclRealm should be the entry point for your need.
More to come for the documentation on the setup of this.
