Subject Re: Re: Single Sign-On over several Struts-based webapps
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2003 13:36:18 GMT

Hi Craig,

Thanks for your help. However, I was thinking about several webapps that do
not share the same virtual host or the same realm. Probably this has nothing
to do with Struts, but I'm wondering if this is possible to do in order to
apply it to a distributed system.
