I need to write a custom BasicAuthenticator class to decode a specialized encoding of the authToken.  I have been scouring google for info.  I found one post where the answer included the statement:

"Extending from AuthenticatorBase is a great idea, and you can avoid Tomcat's standard authenticator by configuring your authenticator as a in your application's META-INF/context.xml file."

That is  precisely what I want to do. But I cannot find any documentation on how to configure a different authenticator class in a context.xml file.  I'm sure I'm just missing it, or I'm using totally incorrect words in the googe searches to find it.

Can someone please point me to the documentation for this?
