i have put together an analogy of tomcat's MemoryUserDatabase for use with
WebID [1].

This project moves authentication with WebID to the servlet container and there's
no need to write servlets to check logins. It is tested with tomcat-6.0.32

The project contains implementations of User, Role and Group on an RDF basis,
as well as a WebIDUserDatabaseRealm.

Please note that this is the first draft and currently it is not working as a managed bean,
so you have to edit your tomcat-users.rdf by hand. it is currently not possible to use JMX
to edit the WebIDUserDatabase.

The current version is simply based on an RDF file in the filesystem, to see that everything
is more or less working as expected.

The upcoming version will include the possibility to base the WebIDUserDatabase on generic sail
repositories (i'm still struggling to make stackable sails jndi compatible the right way) which
will enable to use for example a virtuoso triple store as a WebIDUserDatabase for large amounts
of users.

For installation instructions refer to the INSTALL.txt file in the trunk or feel free to write an email
