After adding a Web Application (war) to the pickup I am able to access it from the browser but without needing to authenticate, but if I try to access the Virgo Admin Console the browser prompts for credentials.
How can I define the embedded tomcat to prompt for credential for all apps ?

Hi,

You can put such configuration in the so called "default" web.xml.
Get "default" web.xml from <Virgo-Home>/repository/ext/org.eclipse.gemini.web.tomcat-<version>.jar!/conf/web.xml
Modify it
Put it in <Virgo-Home>/config folder
Restart Virgo

Regards
Violeta

Hi Violeta,
Thanks for your response.
There is no web.xml in <Virgo-Home>/repository/ext/org.eclipse.gemini.web.tomcat-<version>.jar!/conf/web.xml.
but there is a web-embed.xml in the jars root (is that the file you meant ?)
I tried modifying the web-embed.xml file and placing it in <Virgo-Home>/config folder (I also tried renaming it to web.xml),
but it seems that virgo is not using it as the default web.xml (how can I know for sure ? maybe jmx ?)
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jacob

Can you tell me what the Virgo version is cause we introduced this feature in 3.0.0
For previous versions you can edit web-embed.xml directly in the jar, then start Virgo with -clean option.

Violeta

PP: The default web.xml is called web-embed.xml in previous versions.
