In my Eclipse development environment when particular servlet requests are made
I want to simulate going through Shibboleth prior to Tomcat handling the
request. I wanted to see if this will work.
In Eclipse within each dynamic web application I would add a valve to the
The valve would:
1) Check the URL request.
2) If the URL string matches a list then it will add particular name value
pairs to the request.
Example of a possible valve:
<Valve className="my.valves.ShibbolethSimulationValve" />
1) Can a valve actually identify a particular URL path?
2) Can a valve add an attribute to the request prior to the servlet
getting the request?
3) If item #1 and #2 will work does anyone have some base code for a value
that would get me started down the correct path?
Thanks for all of your help.
