- adapt JAAS to J2EE
- permit easy management of users, roles, web permissions  
- authentication and authorization are handled by a jdbc database(oracle, postgresql or mysql),
which is a flexible way 
- changes take effects 'on the fly' 

this release has been tested on tomcat 4.1.24,postgresql 7.2.1,oracle 10g, mysql 4.0, and
java 1.4.2 on windows.
